The article has a wealth of empirical information on why and how jobs are
getting worse, but nothing about the systemic causes, with the exception of
this throwaway generalization:
"If the bosses have their way, the working class will continue to work
harder for less, generating more profits, wealth and power for those at the
top--that is a dynamic built into capitalism."
Of course regular readership of Michael Roberts is the best antidote for
that lacuna, one which must be filled lest Keynesian ideas fill it.
