Jobs, not Steve

What happened, why do we have to make America great again?
Is it because the Boomers blocked the GenX and Millennials?
Yes they did, but only because they were in the right place at the right time.

I think because taxes were high during the good years more money was plowed back
into growing and modernizing the business, instead of sucking it out to satisfy the
Wall Street wolves and Private Equity Leeches.

Boomers are keeping control by hiring older CEOs. In the last 14 years the fortune 500
CEOs that were hired were born in the same year. In 14 years the age of new hires
has increase by 14 years. That'll keep them whippersnappers out.

Academia is the same, in 15 years the college presidents 71+ went from 2% to 11%,
age 61 to 70 went from 28% to 47%. Ha ha whippersnappers.
Also the number of tenured and tenure tracked teachers has dropped and part time
teachers has climbed from 24% to over 40%.

Even Lawyers are taking a hit, becoming an equity partner is getting difficult if you're
not a relative of a partner. They've made up new categories, new job classes, all of
which say I got mine and you won't.
The same goes for consulting firms, fancy title, no money.

My generation is slowly passing power and wealth to the Boomers but they'll hang
on to it a long time before those behind them see it.

Good thing the fresh faces at the DNC understand the problem.

Let's make sure the country gets another rich guy in his dotage running things.

Warren has also been critical of a nondisclosure agreement women at his company signed that bar them from discussing legal claims they filed. She believes they should be released from the gag order.
I agree, if some disclosed he grabbed them by the pussy he could win over some Trump supporters.
