The US Works Part-Time

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from Washington Examiner): “Behind Wal-Mart, the second-largest employer in America is Kelly Services, a temporary work provider.

“Friday’s disappointing jobs report showed that part-time jobs are at an all-time high, with 28 million Americans now working part-time. The report also showed another disturbing fact: There are now a record number of Americans with temporary jobs. Approximately 2.7 million, in fact. And the trend has been growing. …

“It’s a sad state of affairs for our country. While part-time and temp jobs reached highs last month, full-time jobs decreased by another 240,000. The recovery, or lack thereof, is being fueled by a shift from full-time to part-time work.”

My Comment: They lie—downsizing occurs everywhere, and the numbers are inflated to calm down the markets. Society is gradually transformed into a society that produces nothing; hidden unemployment is ubiquitous. People must be somehow occupied and countries are thinking about how to engage them. But this will not lead to appeasement because nature leads us to the realization of the need for a new level of development.
