Better jobs in America
This chart in today's NYTimes shows: more jobs in engineering, education, and health; fewer in cars and construction (mentioned in article only). The number of jobs is down because of the recession, made worse by the bad Republican management of the country in recent years. The left will complain that there are fewer workers in low-skill, high-pollution union jobs; the right will complain that health and education "costs" are increasing. The important point is that Americans are working on more satisfying jobs that make a difference in people's lives: engineering, health, and education.
