Unemployment in the United States

Uploaded by gstamatinos21 on Jun 03, 2015

Unemployment in the U.S.A has reached epidemic levels in recent years. Legislatures at all levels have raced to create solutions to this pressing crisis. From the federal government to local government, there have been many routes taken to curb the growing number of unemployed. High unemployment rates in the U.S.A effect all aspects of the economy, albeit some more severely than others. It gives consumers less capital to spend, which in turn will decrease the revenue being generated by business. When these businesses start feeling their profit margins tumble, they start cutting employees and the whole cycle repeats. The government approved an 800 hundred billion dollar stimulus plan just to turn around the economy a couple years back, yet that has had minimal effects. The reality is, almost 4 million open jobs require specific specialized skills, which is very hard on young people in particular.

While it’s true that a third of all new business fail in the first 2 years, and half fail in the first 5, the rest are very likely to have rapid growth. This simple concept has seemingly failed to reach the minds of politicians across the U.S.A. A very telling stat is that in 1999 4.7 million jobs were created by startup businesses compared to 2.7 million new jobs created by startups in 2012 (Chau). Another crucial part of the economy not receiving nearly enough attention by the government is small businesses. As a matter...
