Obama’s Socialism Works?

An interesting study in the reality of applied socialism in a class study.  Check it out.  Excellent example!

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

In a recent Executive Order signed by Gov. Walker, Executive Order 18, what should be seen as progress and an end to unfair discrimination has instead been turned around by the AFL-CIO as a slam against workers again, specifically against young workers, an end to apprentice jobs.

Walker Slams Door on Young Workers, Ends Apprentice Jobs

Walker quietly issued an executive order this month suspending rules that require contractors on state projects to employ workers under the state apprenticeship program.

Walker’s executive order, his 18th, was not distributed as a press release, unlike the prior 17, each of which can still be read on the “Media Center” section of the governor’s website.

Under the apprenticeship program contractors provide on-the-job training in a skilled trade to apprentices and also pay them wages as they attend classes at a technical college or other institution. It is overseen by the state Department of Workforce Development, and carried out at the local level by the state’s 94 local trade committees, boards staffed by local employer and employee representatives.

Like apprenticeship programs around the country, Wisconsin’s is a pathway to good, skilled middle-class jobs for young workers. State Rep. Barbara Toles (D) says suspending the rules will:

negatively impact people’s ability to gain access to apprenticeships, especially minorities and women.

In actuality what Gov. Walker did was to rescind EO 108 which requires that companies that bid on govn’t jobs have apprenticeship programs.  While apprenticeship programs are all well and good, this discriminates against companies with do not have these programs, which may offer more specialized services and which may be able to bid lower on the projects.
