While the Federal Reserve Bank – a private bank – continues to work to reduce
employment in the US by reducing the numbers every year to what is now getting
close to low 50% …

we are supposed to believe that it is beneficial for the disabled and the poor to
work for minimum wage in jobs that barely exist and which only illegal aliens are
likely to accept?

Working creates expenses in clothing which the poor cannot afford –
Also in commuting costs and other expenses – especially if they have children.

This can’t possibly be anything but an effort to punish the poor and the disabled.

Are Elites hoping that new illness, new stress, will eliminate them?
