Because They're Not Real Jobs, That's Why
A helpful reminder that the Party of Personal Responsibility doesn't give a shit about kicking +900,000 federal workers to the curb or shutting down courts and parks and cancer trials because it has long been Official Wingnut Dogma that those aren't "real" job anyway.
Because a "real" job (as defined by then-RNC Chair Michael Steele) is a job that never, ever ends.
Which is going to come as a very large shock to the tens of millions of Americans who have quit or been fired or laid off or right-sized or outsourced or otherwise displaced into the unemployment line.
Also no one mention this to my Mom, who taught school for +40 years and all the while thought that she had a "real" job too.
Finally, I sure hope Michael Steele isn't try to defraud future employers by listing "RNC Chair" on his resume under "Previous Job Experience". Because given that he got his happy ass canned from that gig back in 2011, no-way no-how does his brief, hilarious stint as the GOP's "Quick! Get us a black guy too!" table-decoration qualify as a "real" job either.
