This explains uneducated white male rage

It’s no secret that the most conservative faction in the U.S. today is uneducated white males who make up the bulk of the extreme factions in rightwingnut politics. Clearly all the “liberation” movements, the outsourcing, the demands for college education for almost any job left in the U.S. has left this group behind. And, of course, they have been used to ruling their domain, especially over their womenfolk who now more than likely bring home the bacon. So this bunch of budding Peronista brownshirts is prime fodder for the likes of Limbot and the Repugs to rile up.

In this article, how the U.S. has the worst work-to-home allocation, dissecting the numbers reveals interesting trends.

  1. women are working much more, esp. single moms (of whom there are many more)
  2. educated males are working more (our conventional wisdom about the never-away-from-work connected worker)
  3. uneducated males are working less

So here it is, the money graph of this article:

LessWork

“Leisure time” just means time not spent working, IOW, unemployment or part-time work. So we have these uneducated males goofing off a lot while educated males are working harder. Old Archie Bunker now lives off Edith and never gets his butt out of his recliner. Talk about a group that feels entitled! Their economic prospects have changed, no one wants them, esp. at high wages in this country, and naturally they’ll let their wives or girlfriends work at the convenience store since as men they’re entitled to the high wage union jobs their dad had and “too good” to take what’s available.

Well, guys, you’re the ones who’ve been supporting the union busting Repugs – are you really surprised you have no work? You’re the ones who’ve been supporting the tax cutting and foreign tax shelter Repugs, are you really surprised? You listen to Rush and blame gays, women, minorities, Mexico/China and then go vote Repug. Well, fellows, you get what you pay for.
