This country was a better place when aerospace engineers were treated with respect and highly sought after skills. The decline in America's technical world wide leadership coincides with the decline of the aerospace industry treatment of its engineers.
You are completely wrong.
Colleges turning out millions of skilled grads who can't find work ending up bagging groceries for $7 an hour. They deserve respect.
Meawhile all big bloated defense contractors with employees making more than they deserve. All defense contrators have poor accountability giving us taxpayers these crazy expensive products we must buy as a nation. And for what, picking wars we shouldnt be in to begin with.
I suggest to Obama in 2nd term to nationalize (seize) defense companies then fire old deadwood employees and fire ALL of the management. For any defense companies involved with project over runs or fraud, government should fine and or imprison ALL employees and management directly working on those cost-over-run projects because the american people were robbed.
Give thier jobs to college grads and avoid hiring problem employees like ex military people or the Wall Street type big biz thugs as they often have abrasive personalities and cant get along usually with others. Hire qualified college educated people who are looking for work and have positive attitudes.
After the defense companies are streamlined with qualfied people making what they're supposed to, we move on to seizing big oil companies to lower gas prices. Next nationalize the big manufacturing to create jobs such as GM, Ford, Chrysler, Harley, caterpillar, General Electric, and on and on. For every person you fire making over $100K, you hire two new employees making half that and you permanently get rid of most multilevel management so now less overhead and products are cheaper. Government can make our industry more efficient so america can be prosperous again.
