Total Number of Paychecks in America Keeps Going Down; Jobs, Jobs, Jobs My Ass

We're told baby boomer's are retiring as the reason, but why aren't those job openings being filled by younger workers?

Why do we only discuss this issue once a month when the Jobs Report comes out?

Why do we not talk about NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT/WTO and Low Wage Arbitrage as the cause?

People Not In Labor Force Soar By 663,000 To 90 Million, Labor Force Participation Rate At 1979 Levels

"Things just keep getting worse for the American worker, and by implication US economy, where as we have shown many times before, it pays just as well to sit back and collect disability and various welfare and entitlement checks, than to work .The best manifestation of this: the number of people not in the labor force which in March soared by a massive 663,000 to a record 90 million Americans who are no longer even looking for work. This was the biggest monthly increase in people dropping out of the labor force since January 2012, when the BLS did its census recast of the labor numbers. And even worse, the labor force participation rate plunged from an already abysmal 63.5% to 63.3% - the lowest since 1979! But at least it helped with the now painfully grotesque propaganda that the US unemployment rate is "improving.""

I'm trying to find the youtube clip where Dr Ron Paul says we should abolish all trade treaties and go with bilateral trade. If anyone has it, I'll put it in the article.
