The shift of blame towards the poor distracts us from the real cause of the problems. Take a step back and look at who's pulling the strings. Who has the ability to dictate if we live in prosperity or wade in poverty up to our knees with empty promises of a fair economy? The economy thrives as they lease the Third World overseas an alternative to minimum wage that promises darker days. But if they could only bring it home... Third World come home. "Workfare" can keep them here with a guarantee to profiteer. Free labor, no union rights, and a public subsidy to lock it all in place. And the layoffs make room for this slave labor. The laid off enter poverty. Real wages fall, but blame it on the poor, blame it on anyone but the corporations responsible. Yeah, don't bother to pack, the Third World is coming home.
