From a slashdot comment I wrote on January 8:  (remarks from the comment it is in reply to are in quotation)

"It's all about economics. Women went into the work force in the late seventies, that's what allowed the economy to restructure and prolong itself"

You want productivity, right? You want the country producing more stuff, don't you? Putting more people into jobs is a way to do that. More people working == more stuff produced, which is your net productivity. Now, it might not increase your per capita productivity, but it does increase your net productivity.

"people have to work more to get less, but you can thank the government for that, with all the inflation, taxes, regulations, which pushed productive jobs elsewhere"

Oh, that's right. I forgot that you want to pay employees nothing for their time. You want to be able to buy and sell them like cattle or cord wood on the open market. You want all workers to be "at-will" so that they can be hired and fired on a whim without any avenues for recourse. You want to ensure that power is concentrated in the hands of the very few and kept away from working class people at all costs.

For some reason you call this freedom. Thinking people see this as fascism for the people.
