We have been hearing from mainstream news that the economy is sluggishly improving, but is it really? How could it be improving when foreclosures are at an all time high in New Jersey? How could it be getting better when American company Radio Shack is on the verge of selling out and desperately looking for capital? How could it be improving when American companies like Burger King strategically buy Canadian based Tim Horton’s in order to move its headquarters to Canada to avoid paying our high corporate tax rate? How can it possibly be getting better when the vast majority of the jobs in our country are now service industry jobs like flipping burgers. These jobs are acceptable for teenagers looking to make extra money, or seniors who are retired and looking for a little extra cash. However, they are inadequate for head of households looking to feed their families, pay for a mortgage, bills and gas. These jobs are not enough to pay back student loans for college graduates.
