We Have to Reduce the Work Week
After all the deliberation, $9.00 an hour Federal minimum wage will still not be enough to deal with the new reality that there aren't enough jobs.

The failing economy has always been a result of the structual unemployment brought about by a forever more efficent office and factory.

Robots are replacing workers exponentially starting this year in 2013.

I purpose what we have already done in the future. We can start early and really change things.

Everybody should either work 6 hours a day maximum or 3 to 4 days a week.

Retail jobs, health care jobs, service jobs, police, construction, teaching. These jobs will be around for awhile yet. People will be fighting for these jobs.

It is best to share the jobs so that everyone can at least have enough money to buy a tablet computer and pay their rent and broadband.

If you're in the U.S., you're probably already doing this, but consider living together with close friends. Two families should start sharing apartments just about now. This should ease the burden.

And legalize. Bring this cash crop back to the U.S. and tax it.

Might work in Utopia, but not the real world. Many people don't want to work. Many don't have the skills and aren't even able to learn the skills. Motivation is a big key, there are jobs now that are empty but people won't work them because they don't want too.

More family, maybe even increasing birthrates because career is not as much important anymore as it was before.

The automation of processes, more and more machines doing the work real people did before them, yet they make you fear for your existence, create the agitation of one is worth nothing without a job, even if the one can´t get one because there are not enough.

Example, Germany, approximately 600.000 notified vacancies, unofficial number of unemployed -> 6+ Million people, easy math isn´t it ? There will be no full employment for everyone.
And Miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep....
