White Men Can't... Work?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

White men may not have jobs, but at least they will have more time to enjoy sports actvities such as basketball, and finally learn to jump. As for any associated sport injuries: there's always Obamacare.

Yes, in order to bring ethnicity into the equation on a story like this one, it is necessary to 1) blame minorities for the plight of the white middle class, and 2) divide up the whites into different subgroups, especially by religion.  It gets complicated, but it gets the job done.

Agreed. The post is disengenuous. I really don't understand the point. Is tyler taking the Joe Weisenthal Click Bait Challenge?

 

This chart doesn't even clearly state what it is measuring. Is it measuring employment participation of white males over twenty exclusively, or as a percentage of overall general employment?

If the latter, which I find more likely, then it is obviously greatly due to shifting demographics. Also not mentioned is whether hispaincs are included as 'white' for the purposes of this chart. (unlikely, although for crime statistics, hispanics are very often counted as being white... in an attempt to skew results to favor a predetermined narrative.)

Junk away.

Some guys are having fun with it, so I suppose it serves as a catharsis, but many here are swallowing it as factual. Many are familiar with the whole derpa derp mantra. Don't be the derp. 

If this is getting you all hot and bothered, I realize there may be no talking you down from the ledge, but seriously.

You absofuckinglutely hate it when the MSM uses such slight of hand to advance a narrative. Why would you tolerate it here?

HoofHearted's picture

Dude, it has nothing to do with race here. It says that a bunch of white guys got so used to going to the same job every day. And then when that job was no longer needed, they didn't get their lazy cracker asses off the couch to retrain and get a different job. They didn't bust their hump to take a job at Wal-Mart and work up to management. They instead waited for the jobs to come back. Well, in many cases that isn't happening. A Chinese or Indonesian child is working on the assembly line instead. 

If a white guy knows math or physics or engineering or something, I can find him four jobs in the next hour. If he says. "I'm in construction. I've always been in construction," then he is probably out on his ass for sometime. Now if he can repair old houses, he just might be able to eke out a living.

I had neighbors in the old place that just sat on their asses and waited for it to come back. I had good friends who got retrained or tried a contracting business on their own. But the time of the assembly line union job that pays a really good wage...well, that is no longer. And that doesn't matter if you are a white guy, some other race, or even a female. This is more than just about white guys, but this is one stat that can point it out.

Dude, there are a hell of a lot of engineers who understand physics, or computer programming, sitting around getting not the least little bite on their resumes.   Those jobs were outsourced too, and yet we were never unionized, organized whiners.   We were doers, and like being doers.   We need it.  We were hard working, coffee drinking fact and science driven designers who made all the stuff and amenities in the vast movie set everyone else acts their lives out in, selling each other financial services, filling out forms and filing papers to each other, and suing each other, as near as I can gather, the whole thing being propped up by hope and pretending and wylie-coyote-over-the-canyon-floor suspension of reality.

Yes, ZH posts more dubious clickbait all the time.

Over 20 includes retired people, so what this chart shows in large part is:

1) Life expectancy is a lot longer now, so the number of retired white men is much larger relative to working white men.  In the good old days, men had not much left in them after a lifetime working in the mine or factory.

2) The baby boom is retiring now too.

3) Labor force participation has declined in all demographics for lots of reasons.

Maybe ZH is angling for a buyout by HuffPost.

What more do you feel this chart needs to state?  It measures the labor force participation rate amongst white males 20 and over.  It's not a riddle.

Rather than claiming this is disengenuous (sic) you could either look up what "Labor Force Participation Rate" means or take it further and fact check it yourself.

It's great that you want to skew it with talk of crime rates and Hispanics being misidentified as white, but nonsense and conjecture will only get you so far.

All the data is out there, don't demand that it be spoon-fed to you and then whine about the luster of the spoon.

buckethead's picture

The FRED page you linked does not say whether the data measures the percentage of white males (exlusive of other races) over 20 within the labor force, or whether it shows what percentage of the labor force consists of white males over 20.

I am still unclear. X% of white males are working orrrr.. X% of the labor force is white males?

 

Maybe I am supposed to know that, but I dont, and I don't see where it has been clarified.

Wed, 11/13/2013 - 13:23 | 4150455 buckethead
buckethead's picture

Okay... by checking the percentages of other races in similar charts, I can reasonably deduce that this chart represnets the percentage of white males participating within the labor force, exclusively.

Hispanics have a higher participation rate, and I can reasonably deduct that they are not included in the 'white' demographic.

Additionally, the percentages add to more than 100%, therfore they must be exclusive to thier stated racial demographic.

It occurs to me that defining what is being measured would be a simpler way of conveying information.

So... I was wrong there. Perhaps I was wrong regarding the spirit of this post as well.

That's kind of my point, you are claiming something is disingenuous just because you don't know what it means.

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/participationrate.asp

By definition it measures x% of the labor force is working or looking for work, and can be broken down to x% of y class of the labor force is working or looking for work.

We ended up with three sharecropping families over the summer. The lots are now closed and prepared for next spring. The only big expense we had was installing a non-movable dumpster so they had a place to dispose of their refuse, including the bottles left over from the water they drank. Its a great experience to watch families 'farm' while drinking Perrier. In the next two years: creating a dirt bike path for their kids who clearly got bored in ten minutes and a fenced in doggy run for those who want to bring their fur children.

I too am long sharecroppers.

"Why should white men work? Why should anyone work? Buy stocks with EBT cards."

 

Seriously.....that is the way to bring down the system.  You can forget your guns and revolution and stupid shit like that.  Prepper, patriot fantasies.

 But.....become the poison inside the belly of the beast which kills it.  Downgrade your job so that you don't have to have ANY TAXES taken out per paycheck and qualify for EARNED INCOME TAX CREDITS, get your SNAP CARD, if you have kids get WIC too, try to get an assistance on your ELECTRICAL AND UTILITES.

Then enroll in OBAMACARE (when you can) and adjust your income further to get FULL SUBSIDIES to pay for it all....if not enroll in Medicaid.

In short.....go to your state's official website for services and the fed's and adjust your income to GET EVERYTHING THAT IS OFFERED !

I'm not kidding.  This is how you can collapse the system.  Ayn Rand had it wrong.  Going Galt is not going away.  It's staying inside and taking advantage of the system until it dies.  And you don't have to riot, or march in the streets or get killed dying in your patriot fantasies.

It's the ultimate guerilla warfare.

Probably more like this

1. Men work hard in order to get attractive women.

2. Women, looking for free resources to raise their children where attracted men with dependable income.

3. Women decide to vote for gov't that promise them lots of free stuff. Women get married to the gpv't and dump dependable men for reckless pretty boys.

4. Since hard work no longer attractive to women, Men choose not to work so hard. Men too vote for gov't that promises them free stuff, so they can hardly work and become reckless pretty boys.

Exactly. 

The social contract has been broken.  I sure hope womankind's awakening accelerates, because as much as the general increase in awareness (re: the gov't not looking out for you) has been incredible, women have trailed measurably.

Probably because by and large, the last few years have not been a recession for them.  Its just been a time where their husband/boyfriend/son is having trouble finding work.  Workers in health care, and gov, have had a radically different experience to everyone else.  I hope they know that.  And that the gravy train won't run forever.

There is some truth to what you write.

This does not bode well for America, men (of any race) need to be working.  The fact that they are not is a function of many social pressures.

Idle men create havoc for the culture.  Out of wedlock births, crime, addiction, broken families as well as other less pronounced social illness (depression, etc).  We are seeing this right now.

The causes are many, but the government is by far the biggest enabler of this aberant trend.

The end of the age draws near.

I know precicely ONE black guy who woke up and realized that they are being screwed worse than ever.  Those welfare checks for single moms (because who needs a man around? Feminism alone can raise children right?) might be the best option for the short and medium term, but they do much more harm than good.

And for the politicians and news anchors who keep saying that it's all about self-esteem....well how can you have self-esteem swiping an EBT card?  But of course they say that it's racism instead, because that's the go-to cause of all problems.  Nope, don't actually have to think about things, just racism, must be it.

Course I work 7 days a week.  Who the fuck can just sit around?  I'm at the end stage of completing my second total renovation.  I've gutted and rebuilt two kitchens, four bathrooms, planted right at 100 fruit trees, and about 10,000 square feet of garden.  I'm guessing maybe 100 one ton truck loads of country bumpkin garbage.  Tore down a 1,300 sq ft cracker shack on one property.  Run about 1,000 feet of field fence (for the vegetable gardens).  On, and on and on.  Oh, and I found time to take a 7 month vacation to Alaska while I was at it.  Yeah, I'll admit it, I'm slowing down in my old age.  But I'm working smarter.

No jobs for white men.  The tech industry, for instance, has been racially cleansed.  Its rare to find a white person in IT under the age of 35.  Yet the engineering schools were generally chock full of them in the late 1990s/early 2000s, studying for the relatively high paying jobs at the time.

The problem with foreigners is that once you hire them, and once they become managers, they rarely consider white people for the jobs.  Even if equally qualified.  Always hire within their own ethnic communities, so as to re-create the "caste" system of their home-lands.
