White Men Still Can't Work

Postby Taco » February 9th, 2014, 12:35 pm

You can fly to another country to start a new job or you can walk across the border to Mexico bare foot and starving to find a job.

That and the horrible women is why I left. Simply escaping that Matrix of pain, anguish, and despair is a victory in and of itself. I wonder if there will ever be a revolt by hopeless males? Men can only be pushed so far before they stop putting up with the bullshit. But then again, I've been wondering when such a thing would happen for years.

Rooting around in the original report, the situation applies to ALL American men (except Asians), not just the white ones.
Automation isn't able to push papers around (yet), so womens' desk jobs are safe for a while.

Wrt the question of a large, general male revolt. IMO, it won't happen in any unified way.
Men aren't herd creatures (wrt other men) and those who push the info always make sure to pit males into subgroups against each other. In the West, it's usually by race or income. Where people are more homogeneous, it's tribe or religion.
For each man, the solution will be something he decides is best for himself -- not the consensus of the herd.

Lots of their "jobs" could be automated or are completely unnecessary in the first place, but they are employed anyway for having a vagina. Females are employed to do stuff like manually dragging and dropping files e-mailed to them into the appropriate folder – something that a three line computer program could do.

Yeah, it's totally just white guys and not all men that are suffering from declining labor participation rates.

A large part of the workforce decline had been aging workers. Of all people 24-55, 76% are employed, while 82% participate in the workforce.

Men aged 25-54 have a participation rate of 88%. While they don't break it down by race, my bet is white men are slightly above the average:
