Unemployment and Overwork

To those of you who think that full employment would be such a tough nut to crack:

We have failing infrastructure, shortages of nurses, ludicrously overworked social workers and public defenders, inadequate medical specialists working in rural areas, overworked teachers, overworked software developers and QA professionals…

And we have people without jobs.

When America needed to mobilize resources to get an atomic bomb and to get through World War II, it did.

The hours are out there. The work is out there. It’s there for immigrants and it’s there for Americans. It’s our choice to not give everyone the pride of work. The access to work should be a human right.
