This is the reason…

“One respondent said that during a recent six-month attempt to add to staff for a new product, two-thirds of applicants for assembly line jobs were screened out before hiring via math tests and drug tests; of 400 workers hired, only 180 worked out.”

That comes down to a grand total of 15% that was successfully employed.

Education is certainly part of the deal. Or rather the lack thereof at the hands of government schools. There’s no longer any doubt that we need to remove government from the education business. St.Louis that’s only half the tale.

The other half is the cultural shift away from the traditional American work ethic. In part that’s due to the abdication of the educational role from the parents to the governments.
Remember what I said a few weeks ago?

Absent the effort to allow the culture back into the role and value set… The perceptions of morality, of right and of wrong, that it had at the founding of this country, we are not going to save it.

Do you understand, now?
