Ridgewood NJ, On Labor Day I was at Graydon late in the afternoon. The water was beautiful, the weather was spectacular, the snack bar was humming, there were lots and lots of people swimming and on the sand. It was, in a (hyphenated) word, picture-perfect.

This Labor Day, let’s acknowledge why our job-creation machine is broken

mike_rowe_dirty_jobs

Published: Sept 2, 2016 2:38 p.m. ET

It’s Labor Day weekend, and despite unemployment under 5% and nearly 15 million private-sector jobs created since February 2010, nobody’s celebrating.

Workforce participation is stuck near historic lows, six million people are part-timers but want to work full time, and wage growth remains subdued.

Both presidential candidates have talked a good game about jobs and the economy, but neither addresses the real problem. The U.S. job-creation machine—once the envy of the world—is broken, because American corporations cannot create steady, well-paying jobs here in the USA while also providing maximal returns to their investors, who are really in charge.
