What Happened to "Where's the Beef"?

Remember the political chant; "where's the beef"? Well, it now is "WHERE'S THE WORK?

No votes yet

I thought that was a Wendy's commercial more than a political chant. Could have been both I guess.

Zero Job Growth the Past Decade. Can't blame it all on the current leader who's in office one year.

Heck of a job, Bush. Thanks Bushies...

For most of the past 70 years, the U.S. economy has grown at a steady clip, generating perpetually higher incomes and wealth for American households. But since 2000, the story is starkly different.

The past decade was the worst for the U.S. economy in modern times, a sharp reversal from a long period of prosperity that is leading economists and policymakers to fundamentally rethink the underpinnings of the nation's growth.

It was, according to a wide range of data, a lost decade for American workers. The decade began in a moment of triumphalism -- there was a current of thought among economists in 1999 that recessions were a thing of the past. By the end, there were two, bookends to a debt-driven expansion that was neither robust nor sustainable.

There has been zero net job creation since December 1999. No previous decade going back to the 1940s had job growth of less than 20 percent. Economic output rose at its slowest rate of any decade since the 1930s as well.

And what exactly are the jobs creation numbers since Jan. of last year?
