Why employment is dead in the water. “For most businesses, overhead costs 50% to 100% of total employee compensation–wages plus benefits and payroll taxes. So adding another employee to gross 20% more doesn’t make it worthwhile–it actually generates a loss once overhead costs are paid.” Profits? Costs? Overhead? This is a foreign language to academics and politicians, to whom money apparently grows on trees along with the unicorn steaks.

Or you know, it could just be Corporate Greed.


Shut up, creepycrawley


of course you do, but you are a moron.


Or it could be just stupid, unthinking morons. Like you!


This is why academia should be forced to actually leave their sheltered lives, work in the private sector for at least 2 consecutive years, then just maybe they would understand that all if their lectures are fantasies and bull shit.

As for the dim wit politicians, they are a lost cause and the sooner everyone that votes D for dumbass realize it. The sooner they can get a grip on reality and begin the process of becoming self reliant.
