Franklin D. Roosevelt scorned and worked against the minority in the 1920’s that had such a powerful influence over the majority of the country at that time (Sachs). However the economic and political factors differ today from 1920’s. China and globalization add even more challenges to solving the economic crisis at hand (Sachs). In the present economy, “profits are being earned, and kept, abroad” (Sachs, 2011, p. 30). In the U. S. workers are losing jobs as more and more companies are moving operations off shore, these workers also must compete with higher educated individuals and oversea workers for jobs, while manufacturing and other low skill jobs continue to shrink (Sachs).

More people are unemployed and they cannot buy the products and our economy is hurting from it. It looks good when a product is cheaper it attracts more customers but another thing is the quality. If products are created here they may be created with more quality as employees will actually spend more time as they will take pride in creating them as their friends and family will use them. When people create them foreign they do not know who’s going to use them and their getting paid near nothing.
Job loss, homes in foreclosure, and the people who still have jobs would be living from paycheck to paycheck. If manufacturing were to halt nationwide, nearly everyone would feel the financial strain, even the ones who do not feel it now. Manufacturing companies stores would have a decrease in the products they supply, and the products still available would be much more expensive. Closing the borders to international trade will cause financial strain and job losses in the manufacturing sector.

However, large companies aren’t the only ones guilty of our sourcing. While they may do it on a large scale and take the most jobs away from us in the United States, small companies outsource jobs too. Gene Marks, a writer from Huffington po and a self-proclaimed “outsource-aholic” says, “Outsourcing is a quick high and a way to feel… profitable.” He owns a small business and uses outsourcing for a number of reasons.

(Greene, 2006) Outsourcing should not be allowed to cause U.S. citizens to be jobless, or receive low wages due to business relocating their productions to other countries. Moreover, if free trades continues in the way that it is going, it will bring down America's average wage. Furthermore, if big companies still keep getting tax breaks for buying machinery less and less workers will be needed, meaning, that people will be out of work.
Working in a monopoly is extremely hard, especially when you are responsible for the items are produced because no one else makes them. If you do not complete your daily job then you are fired and are no longer making even a small bit of money. As you can tell, us workers live in harsh conditions and we cannot afford to lost any small amount of income we may be receiving. The living conditions are the bad part. Living in such a filthy environment never gets easier, especially when I am doing all I can to just make a small income for my family.
Half of these homeless people are families, forced out in the streets as a result of job loss which as a result increases a feeling of hopelessness because jobs become increasingly hard to find leaving even the most qualified individual without work. This often happens because companies in recession have less money to spend and because of that, are forced to lay off employees in order to survive. Less educated employees are often the target of layoffs. They are more vulnerable compared to those with a good education. And because during recession it is difficult for one to find a new job, those out of employment often stay there sometimes for as long as the recession lasts.
The largest companies in the United States are finding that there are workers that are just as qualified in other countries that do not require as much pay. The article Vanishing Jobs says, “Nationally, layoffs are eliminating jobs far beyond blue-collar workers... in the ever shrinking manufacturing sector” (Katel). This quote interprets the idea that business will do anything to make a greater profit through cutting costs. Most politicians say that the issue behind job loss in the United States is because of lack of education.

“The fact that tens of millions of workers will still be trapped in low-wage hell while a sliver of Americans live better than the kings of old will seem like a minor detail.” (David Callahan) Hard working individuals are treated unequally in retrospect to the little amount of income they receive compared to the 1% community and the limited amount of work they need to complete to be considered the 1%.

The government should step in and do more to fix this issue because income inequality is causing controversy and discrimination between the 1% of wealthy individuals and the not so much, poorer less fortunate 99% of America 's working class citizens. With income inequality on the rise, it is slowly but surely killing our country from the inside out. It is causing the middle class to slowly dissipate into a false reality with endless hope for recovery and modification.
During many people were getting dismissed from their jobs due to the U.S government to having enough money to pay the employees. During this time U.S had to save and that’s what caused employment to decrease. Even after the Great Recession finding a job was tough, people were long -term unemployed some had to wait around six months to find a job others even longer. By 2010 long-term unemployed were rapidly increasing to having a job. Other long-term unemployed left labor force permanently and some of those ended up on disability rolls.
