With regard to employment there is a double whammy taking place.
1) Anti-business policies discourage investment in expansion and new ventures resulting in poor job creation.
2) Increased employee benefits mandated by this administration such as Obamacare, destructive union harassment (e.g. new Boeing plant), and the expansion of the employee grievance tort industry have made employees toxic to employers. Note that the most successful company today, Apple, does its high labor operations (manufacturing) overseas.
I marvel at the number of voters who keep voting for the winding down of industry who then complain about the lack of jobs or the decline of the middle class. You silly people voted for it, that is what the Democrats stand...
