If you are looking for a job and can't find one, thank a politician.
Right now the United States is looking at a default because Congress can't come to an agreement. This means the credit rating of the United States may go down and this means the United States economy will become weaker. This means that working people will have it that much harder when looking for a job or career advancement.
Then there is Obamacare. This legislation will just make it harder for people to find fulltime jobs or jobs at all. More and more working people will find that they can only work 29 hours a week because if they work more, their employer will be required to offer them health insurance or pay a $2,000 fine. Companies with fewer than 50 employees don't have to offer health insurance. So small to midsize companies may be more cautious in adding more personnel.
Right now, the political process is not helping working people.
