“U.S. labor participation rate falls below UK’s (for first time in 36 years)”
Well, to be fair, the US does abort more of its choices. Leaving it with a smaller pool of workers willing to do the jobs that mostly only illegal aliens will do. So the numbers were eventually going to catch up to us, right?
Besides: what’s the problem with a low labor participation rate? Do we really need things like cheaper fuel or the liberty that comes with property ownership when we can have, like, more poets and what not living off the undeserved excesses in wealth of the bourgeois?
Plus, babies are stinky and they are like little infesting aliens trying to find purchase in Amanda Marcotte’s unspoiled and highly cultured uterus. Like colonialists. The greedy, thieving little fuckers.
