"Job Creators" is offensive. [View all]

The American economy is not driven by suits in walnut clad offices alone. The worker has just a big of stake in "job creation" as the CEO who collects 500% more in pay. Without the worker on the floor, at the machines, in the line, at the computer, the American economy would come to a halt. Every worker, every employee in this nation contributes to our prosperity, and we have sat back and let the Republicans twist reality yet again and convince the public that jobs come from the wealthy.

I find this so offensive it makes me want to spit. The media and even the rank and file working class conservatives signed on to the meme that only the wealthy who receive generous tax cuts have the ability to create jobs. That is a lie. It is the network of worker and management together across numerous entities that create jobs. Quality products, engineered and manufactured here in America, services rendered coast to coast, food grown, packed and shipped by countless tireless hands all add to driving our economy forward.

The American worker should be ashamed that they allowed the Republicans to remove them from the economic continuum. I think it is time to put an end to the "job creator" myth once and for all.

Take back our place in the economy. Without the worker there is no economy and no job creation.
