      Big business is still corporations! Time for our goverment to work on getting jobs back…. Easy job really!

      Tax incentives for corporations that bring manufacuring back home. Made in America should be the theme … no more temp jobs, we want real jobs with fair pay!

      It comes down to Uncle Sam and changing policies to encourage permante jobs here in America…. In the big picture more people working means more taxes and less help for the average family because now they will be able to provide for themselfs.

      Reminds me of the proverb:

      Give a man a fish and he will feed his family good for a few days. But that is it. Teach a man to fish and provide him the tools needed then he can feed his family everyday.
