Unlike the phony debt crisis, the jobs crisis is real. It did not just happen, either, but results from very specific policies over many years. Unemployment and underemployment are much higher than the official unemployment rate, simply because so many categories of people are not counted: students, workers who are laid off after a short time on a new job, workers who are laid off seasonally or from time to time, the long-term jobless, people who have never had a job, people who are barely employed at just a few hours a week, etc.

The good news is all these policies can be reversed, not easily, but it can be done if we pitch in and work to make it happen.
