The lack of jobs is one of the most critical subjects of the present days in the United States of America. There is a considerable amount of young people, often finishing colleges and getting a degree that can not access a job and make a living for themselves.
Such an undesirable situation has lead over the years to a larger series of controversies. For instance, the problem of immigrants getting the right to live in the United States or not and getting the jobs of the American young people and living them unemployed.
As Sir Ken Robinson said during a TED lecture, most of our educated young men leave college only to get back home and keep playing video games. This is an unsatisfactory situation and the leading class of politicians has to change it as soon as possible, but there may still be need for something greater than that.
The American young people share the mentality of getting a degree and then launch the war of everyone against everyone, to paraphrase philosopher Thomas Hobbes, in order to get a job.
The jobs that are regarded as less noble than sitting at a desk for 8 hours have lost popularity amongst American young people in a considerable proportion and this may not always mean a good sign for a future of a nation. So if you are interested in getting a job and securing your earnings and making a living, you may see the thousands of jobs promised by Nike as very good news.
However, there are still some facts that need to be clarified in order that Nike will succeed in offering the promised jobs. On Friday, Nike has announced this possibility as part of an event where President Barack Obama was invited and which took place at the Nike hq in Oregon.
According to officials talking on behalf of Nike, the Congress has to finish a trade deal with no less than a dozen countries from Asia.
Still, the announcement did not just cause cheers and joy among everyone in connection to the matter.
“This would increase the profits of Nike . but do nothing to encourage Nike to create one manufacturing job in this country”
said Bernie Sanders, who is one of the possible Democratic nominees for the presidential run of the next year.
