Home Is Where the Heart Is, But We Lost the House

There’s absolutely no question, the economy is tearing our lives apart. For many of us our house represents family, stability, love and it keeps us grounded. We wake up there every morning; we eat, laugh, cry, entertain, play and go to sleep there every night. It’s the one place that we get to lay down our troubles, block out the noise of the world around us and feel safe. So we rarely, if ever, give any thought to losing it.

While we speak in terms of being able to afford housing on a monthly basis, it is important to understand that just as the Federal Minimum Wage (FMW) is an *hourly wage,* the ULW is also an hourly wage. What we are saying is that if one puts 40 units of work wage together, four times a month (four weeks in a month), that wage would be sufficient for a person to afford basic rental housing no matter where that person works throughout the United States. This may require that a part-time worker of 20 hours per week secure a second part time job of an additional 20 hours to accumulate 40 units of work, etc.

Unemployment Rate Hits 9.8%

The November unemployment rate came in at a disheartening 9.8%, as employers added a mere 39,000 jobs in November.

The 9.8% jobless rate represents the nineteenth consecutive month where the unemployment rate has been above 9%, the longest streak since such records have been kept. A quick review of the headlines in the Marketplace section of Thursday’s Wall Street Journal – the day before the release of the jobs report — gave ample examples of the job-crushing policies of the Obama administration, with its program of excess regulation, high taxes and Obamacare.

Government Takeover Continues Its Deaf March
