In news that should have been, the US and Afghanistan have reached a new deal for the taxpayers of many countries, pledging at least 10 more years of “support.”
The actual text of the agreement has not been released, however the NY Times reports that the agreement will cover concepts such as “..economic development, institution building… and regional security.” The agreement was called “sweeping by design, with few details to bog down negotiators” by the New York Times. Few details and a sweeping design sound like something that passes 2nd grade drawing class, not geo-political planning and manipulation.
The sad reality of other current US news paints a clear picture of the upcoming situation for many: 1 of 2 new graduates are finding jobs that pay at least a living wage. 1 of 2. Half. Living Wage. The AP reports:
Broken down by occupation, young college graduates were heavily represented in jobs that require a high school diploma or less.
In the last year, they were more likely to be employed as waiters, waitresses, bartenders and food-service helpers than as engineers, physicists, chemists and mathematicians combined (100,000 versus 90,000). There were more working in office-related jobs such as receptionist or payroll clerk than in all computer professional jobs (163,000 versus 100,000). More also were employed as cashiers, retail clerks and customer representatives than engineers (125,000 versus 80,000).
According to government projections released last month, only three of the 30 occupations with the largest projected number of job openings by 2020 will require a bachelor’s degree or higher to fill the position — teachers, college professors and accountants. Most job openings are in professions such as retail sales, fast food and truck driving, jobs which aren’t easily replaced by computers.
Is this the new era that will be pursued by the representatives of the US? And what do The People say about this?
If this is how it is going to be, call me when this era is over: I might be out on this one.
