The June jobs report showed the economy gained 195,000 jobs, but the unemployment rate was unchanged. Many of those jobs however, were low paying or entry level jobs that make earning a decent living difficult. Where have the good jobs gone?

Where have all the good jobs gone?
Where have all the good jobs gone?
Gone, gone away.
Where have all the good jobs gone?
India, China and Bangladesh
That’s where all the good jobs have gone.
Gone, gone away, for good
They aren’t coming back.
Who benefits when all the good jobs go away?
Not you, not me, not that group of three
Or three hundred standing in the unemployment line.
Who benefits when all the jobs go South of the border
Down Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador way?
NAFTA, CAFTA, SAFTA and all that jazz.
Who benefits? CEO’s, members of Congress
Retailers of luxury goods on
Fifth Avenue, Michigan Avenue and Rodeo Drive.
Outsource their jobs: CEO’s, members of Congress
And sellers of luxe goods and then
Outsourcing of good jobs will cease today
The outsourcing of good jobs will cease TODAY.
