The Economy - Low Paying Jobs

During the great recession, most of the jobs that were lost were well paying jobs. During the recovery, most of the jobs created have been low paying jobs. We are approaching the point where we will have gained back all the jobs that were lost, but are things better? I don't think so and so do many Americans. Why? Because of the fact I just stated. Most Americans are now in lower paying jobs, or are still making less than when the recession struck (I know I am). So how do we fix this problem? Do we raise taxes on the wealthy? Do we raise the minimum wage? Do we increase taxes on earned income? Do we lower taxes? No, No, No! We don't need to mess with taxes or raise the minimum wage. What we need to do is create better paying jobs! It's all about the jobs!!! Sometimes I think our elected officials are idiots. Governmental action will not solve this problem. What government needs to do is get out of the way and let businesses grow and hire more people. Then the wages will rise organically as the competition for good employees grows. It's not rocket science. It's common sense which is obviously missing in our elected officials.

What do you think?
