How Empires Fall: Moral Decay

This post was originally published on this siteThere is a name for this institutionalized, commoditized fraud: moral decay.

It’s hard to keep current…), and we’re suitably … Read moreHow Empires Fall: Moral Decay

I was blown away by these numbers, but the more I think about it, it shows exactly what is happening.

Using the civilian labor force and the labor force participation rate, we can easily show how many are working and how many are not working each month.

So I wanted to see how much the unemployed was growing by:

  • Before the implementation of our Free Trade Agreements and the non-immigrant guest worker programs.
  • During the period where we implemented Free Trade Agreements, but before we implemented the non-immigrant guest worker programs.
  • After the implementation of both Free Trade Agreements and non-immigrant guest worker periods.

So I used the following date periods to do that:

  • 1 Jan 1948 to 1 Dec 1975
  • 1 Jan 1976 to 1 Dec 1989
  • 1 Jan 1990 to 1 Feb 2019

As you can see in the following numbers, we had the following changes:

  • Unemployment grew by 10,622,000 before free trade and non-immigrant guest worker programs.
  • Unemployment grew by 19,629,000 when our free trade programs were implemented and before our non-immigrant guest worker programs
  • Unemployment grew by 801,000 when our non-immigrant guest worker programs were implemented.

At first I was puzzled, but the more I think about it, this shows exactly what is happening.

Free Trade Agreements created an additional 19,629,000 unemployed because they were sending jobs to other countries.

During the H-1B period, unemployment continued to grow, but it is masked by importing non-immigrant guest worker programs which is how the unemployment numbers remain low.

As non-immigrant guest workers are imported, they are getting the bulk of the jobs and are being counted as employed, and the American citizens who are getting forced out are initially counted, but as their period of unemployment grows past the U-6 Specifications, they are no longer counted and are forced into:

  • Homelessness
  • Suicide
  • Living with Family
  • Living out of vans and cargo trailers

All the while, the federal government, whose main purpose should be to defend its citizens, turns a blind eye to the injustice of major corporations favoring foreign nationals over working Americans.


The Carter administration’s Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall best summed up the H-1B visa: “One of the best con jobs ever done on the American public and political systems…. H-1B pays below market rate. If you’ve got H-1B workers, you don’t have to do training or pay good wages.”
And yet, despite inarguable research, the beat goes on.
American job displacement occurred last year, ten years before that and, as long as the status quo remains, will continue ten years beyond today.
Silicon Valley has successfully kept itself unregulated, doing whatever it wants to do. The multibillion-dollar companies are, according to The New York Times, embedded on Capitol Hill where they flex their financial muscles to their own advantage.
