My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That’s the only way we’re going to get out of this rut that we’re in.
Rich guy tells the working class that our problem is that they aren’t working hard enough? What next, end the 40 hour work week, make everyone work on Saturdays (but not Sundays — that’s sacred!), and bring back workhouses and sweatshops? What a winner.
