Hard work, manufacturing jobs needed to bring back nation's glory days

To The Herald-Whig:

Unless you have been living under a rock the past four years you know that America is having some economic hardships. Well, even the people living under rocks know, since most of them got their rocks foreclosed on.

We are in this trouble because we are no longer a nation of manufacturers and builders; we are a country of burger flippers and bus boys. Our economy needs to go back to the glory days, but it's not going to happen on its own. We are the ones that have to start the process. People are going to actually have to get dirty and actually work because good things come to those who work hard and, right now, we are a bunch of slackers at the back of the class.

We need to take off that fast food restaurant uniform, put on a pair of work boots, and go find real jobs.
