#Fake Job Reports
Monthly job reports don't tell the whole story about employment. They don't
real jobs: how many jobs were actually filled,
net job gain: jobs created jobs lost,
job categories: temporary, part-time, seasonal, full-time,
job sectors: manufacture, agriculture, transportation, health care, construction,
engineering, science, research and customer service.
#Colonizing Low Income Neighborhoods
When Star Buck and Whole Foods open a store in a low income neighborhood,
the collateral effect is gentrification. Rent and property taxes go through the roof,
driving out the low income class to make room for the more affluent middle-class.
