And in his opening statement he blames slave-driving ("squeeze") and greedy ("good profits") business owners:
"...some have figured out how to squeeze more productivity out of existing employees and that cost cutting has become embedded in their cost cutting and their [company] culture
That may result in good profits. but it's not translating into hiring again...how do we get businesses to get hiring again?"
If my information is correct, the group that has been left out of this "summit" is small business. Yes, that segment of the economy that hires most people, and provides most jobs.
Unions have a major place at the table, though, and government. Which makes perfect sense—if you're the Mad-Hatter.
Of course, it's all just a sham anyway; a farce; making it look like he's "doing something".
What are the chances anyone there will tell him he needs to stop "health care", stop "cap and trade", and cut the hell out of everybody's taxes, especially business and corporate ones...and get busy repealing regulations that cost business billions every year?
What a total waste of everybody's time - so the Resident can pretend he
1) KNOWS what he's doing
2) is doing SOMETHING
3) blame everybody but HIMSELF for the problem
A threefer for the 'Bamster, I guess.
Which is, after all, the most important thing. Because remember:
It is always ALL about Øbama.
