Look, the Administration Created One Job

Share this post

The Administration’s Labor Day solution for the plight of the American worker: to create one job. At a Labor Day rally in Ohio, the President announced that he would create a new national position: assistant secretary of commerce for manufacturing. The New York Times wasted no time in responding:

Now, a new job czar has emerged like the Wizard of Oz to signal that the presidential election cycle is upon us. The agony of the jobless deserves the fullest attention of the president and his eager rivals, and federal action more ambitious than the addition of employment for one happy undersecretary in the Commerce Department.

(See New York Times editorial.)

We couldn’t have said it better.
