"I have wondered about this as well and suspect it is a combination of factors:
1. Boys' part time jobs tended to be blue collar jobs - lawn maintenance, grease monkey, and so on. Our society says you are a loser if you're blue collar.…"
"isn't the labor force participation rate calculated based on those eligible to be working, aka non incarcerated?

"For some reason my replies aren't going where I expect them to -- but the comment in this thread where "Small business used to provide most of the jobs."
Small businesses started being crowded out with FDR. Why? This is because the…"
"This isn't new, either. I remember reading Paul Ragonese's book _Soul of a Cop_ - he was a NYC policeman.
He had issues in his career because in NYC, the Irish-American became a cop, and the Italian-American became a garbage man.

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it.
