Eberstadt asserts that falling employment reduced economic growth, exacerbated inequality, and increased public debt. Employers, facing mounting challenges from low-wage, foreign competitors, have begun seeking greater flexibility in their employment policies, making more use of temporary and part-time employees and putting less emphasis on pay and benefit plans designed to cultivate long-term relationships with employees.

      In my book, The Failure of Laissez Faire CapitalismI give examples and document the devastating impact jobs offshoring has had on communities, cities, pension funds, and consumer purchasing power. Eberstadt's rhetoric runs high, but he is right to bring attention to employment trends. On May 4,a mass meeting of workers was called in Chicago's Haymarket Square to protest the death of a striker at the McCormick Harvester plant.

Because of safety concerns for the prospective applicant, as well as security and communication issues, the CIA Recruitment Center does not accept resumes, nor can we return phone calls, e-mails or other forms of communication, from US citizens living outside of the US.

Eberstadt walks the reader through the difficulties in estimating the scope and scale of this problem. They also have fought union organizing campaigns and strikes more aggressively.

In the early s, the labor force participation rate of single women began a steady rise to nearly 70 percent by see chart at upper left.

If they are suffering as much as Krueger's data indicate, cutting benefits would harm men who need help without changing employment trends. The idle among them need incentives, the injured need care, and the formerly incarcerated need just one employer willing to give them a break-and maybe some legal protection to make that break more likely.

Perhaps they need remedial education or training. The more the aftermath of incarceration matters, the less likely it is that out-of-work men need new incentives to seek employment. The US is said to have full employment with a January unemployment rate of 4. According to the most recent data available, 15 percent of men in their prime working years between 25 and 54 had no job-5 percent were unemployed and 10 percent were neither working nor looking for work.

Employment : We do not routinely answer questions about employment beyond the information on this Web site, and we do not routinely answer inquiries about the status of job applications.

To the extent an aging population requires the assistance of prime-aged family members at home, this also presents a downward pressure on this cohort's participation.

The answer lies in the measurement of unemployment. Most prisoners have only a high school education or less. Naturally the demand for workers was high, but in this time of heightened immigration the supply of laborers keen to make their way in a new country was even higher.

It was common for a worker, particularly an unskilled one, to be out of a job at least part of the year.

Eberstadt is right to point to a serious issue, but to make progress, we need to calibrate the scope and scale of the problem correctly.
