We have about 27 million people between the ages 18 to 24. I cannot find current statistics, but articles in the past few years have shown that half of the kids never make it through high school. Half of those who do are not proficient in reading and math.
Six years ago, in Atlanta, I witnessed two such young ladies agonizing over what an item would actually cost, that had a ticket for 20% off. One of those two was a high school teacher, who had picked up a temp job as a sales clerk, during her Christmas break.
Even if we bring back beaucoup jobs to this country today, there will be about 20 million young people who simply do not have the skills to survive. By the time the GOP removes our safety nets, we will have a helluva revolution brewing.
