In the U.S. a huge percentage of the population is receiving some form of government assistance, and the number of people seeking employment continues to fall. The latter is a major factor in the much-touted decline in the unemployment rate. People either have given up or have found government support to be better than working.
Those who have given up often lack critical skills for the modern world. This is not to lay blame on those individuals per se, but the global economy is leaving them in the dust for a variety of reasons. A large part of the blame must be placed on the failure to differentiate between those seeking higher education to foster careers in business or high technology and those whose career paths are best suited acquiring skills to become other professionals such as electricians and mechanics. We have fostered a system where everyone is supposed to attend college but too few receive a useful education, just massive debt. Adding insult to injury, college graduates now face bleak employment prospects.
