President Obama saying that he welcomes the latest jobs number -- and there will still be.
Ups and downs along the way but with the worst jobs report and five months should the president be taking a different time Wayne Rogers is -- I'm company -- joins me now from Pensacola Florida is a tricky dance lane when -- running for re election and whether you're on the campaign trail but.
Maybe this isn't a blip what do you -- Well I don't I don't think it's a blip I think -- -- you know obviously.
M a in a recovery we're gonna get increasing employment along the way.
However the one thing that peoples have forgotten about is that we have a systemic problem in unemployment that is to say that we have a generation here.
Of people who have lost their jobs and it's not just this recession this goes back over the last ten years.
People who have lost their jobs those jobs are never coming back.
They've gone overseas they've gone somewhere else and in the meantime those people who have to be trained to do that job are not being trained to do that job because there is no job here.
As a consequence -- lose a generation of people who can do certain jobs for example.
I can remember when I was a kid my mother had a sewing -- people had sewing machines that are just so they used to build our comments today are made overseas there -- somewhere else people don't sell any more girls in don't know how to sell men don't know how to sell.
Then that -- take -- -- Kraft is gone and it's gone forever.
-- -- you we show -- be careful what we wish for.
Because again these numbers are negative.
And it does open the door one for the Federal Reserve to try and do more but even the federal government try and do more and we -- point out.
Despite all the stimulus you know -- Nearly a trillion dollars in stimulus.
And payroll tax cut its -- place for over a year this in place the rest of this year is not really creating a significant amount of jobs here.
Then that is correct it is the stadiums keynesian economics and people like Paul Krugman who write about -- say what -- what we haven't spent enough.
People like -- moronic in the sense that yes.
They've tried this dug out over and over again where they say it will stimulate the economy and that's wasted money it's money that the government doesn't know how to spend.
They don't know how to do it efficiently they talked about remember the president talked about shovel ready jobs we're gonna have all -- shovel ready jobs -- up.
None -- that transpired none of it happened and yes it's been a big failure of the way to do this is there inspire the F private economy and some way.
Due to bring back whatever it is that they have but some of those jobs as I said are never coming back we're gonna have to get used a different -- -- living in this country.
-- -- his responsibility.
Is it to retrain people who are still young enough.
To work and won a war but they're not trained in that -- did basically the craft.
Or don't have the train to get a job that might be available to him -- -- Well I think it's every bit individual's responsibility I mean that that is -- good time immemorial Miami and what we won't -- -- then nobody went around handing out jobs is somebody is say you gotta do this in order to eat.
It noted eating you've got to train yourself you've got to have the ambition and the end -- -- -- to go out and do something on your own.
And to take if you're an entrepreneur want to take risk.
If -- working -- -- you can and you work with your -- that you got to learn how to do that people you apprentice themselves to people.
When you are -- on the automobile mechanic you British just up to somebody who did that the problem -- that did Bennett.
Is that those jobs now require a level of sophistication it's much -- -- so that means education you have got didn't.
Embrace your educational -- possibilities and probabilities.
And use that for the best of your ability.
Inspirational why it was great to see you thanks for being here happy Easter thank you deputies say you have seen in person -- -- Wayne Rogers when Rogers and count.
