El desempleo en Puerto Rico...como la Estadidad podra resolverlo?

Tenemos que poner la verdad encima de la mesa, EL DESEMPLEO!

Afrontemos ciertos puntos:

1. El ELA trajo una era industrial para PR....ayudando por un lado el problema de el desempleo en PR...pero tambien trajo una dependencia federal para los Boricuas...(unos 30% de la populacion de Boricuas estan empleado por el Gobierno!)

2. Otro gran porciento 30% a 40% dependen de ayudas indignadas federales (Ciclo vicioso).

3. Todo esto gracias a los incentivos (936/956) para las grandes corporaciones conjuntamente con un pago minimo (esclavitud moderna).

La estadidad solo trae impuestos severos...y mas ayudas federales...ya que muchas mas corporaciones se largan para otros paises..dejando un desemplo mucho mas severos para el Boricua...y solo una clase social podra salir adelante con dignidad.... la Rica...la otra clase social...el pobre...estara en las filas buscando sus chequecitos...esto no es dignidad!


Entonces como la Estadidad podra eliminar esta triste realidad...COMO?????

Cool It will not help

Puerto Rico is poorer than Mississippi the poorest state
in the union,if you check back fifty years ago you will
find that Mississippi was the poorest state then,so if
nothing has changed for Mississippi in fifty years even
when it has been part of the union for over a century then
what progress or change can we see for a Puerto Rican
state other than Mississippi become the second poorest state
in the union.

It's funny....

It's funny how some folks state that Puerto Rico is poor, but do you really think so? Yeah, yeah, some will point out that "on a per-capital" basis compare to the poorest state it is, but really, are we really that poor? Many in Puerto Rico owned their own homes and have at least two cars. Many still have food on their tables and the poorest can still get some kind of help. Many nice homes can be found in “parcelas.” I knew an individual who sold pinchos and had a very nice home and he did not paid, so far as I know, any income taxes on his profits. In Mississippi not that many folks who are classified as poor can claim that they have as much as many "poor" folks in the island. No sir, you can’t convince me that we are extremely “poor.”

Cool Contradictions...

of colonialism. Yep. Revolutions are made to have food. Conciencia and el Boricua are also correct. The issue is more complex. At the moment we need to develop our industries, something that the loyalists movement is against. When will this happen? Our problem, cronic dependency and the social conditioning that this reprents "liberty".

Develop our industries? What industries? We do not have any large local industries, just very small ones that make such things as candies, treated wood, pastries, etc, etc. We all know why there is no large scale local industries.

You only wrote some of the manufacturing industries, which do make up a large part of the PR economy, but they are mostly foreign-owned. There are locally-owned medium-sized industries in Puerto Rico with hundreds millions of dollars in profits, go here to see:

Top 300 locally-owned industries

Top 10 locally-owned industries by industry
http://www.puertoricowow.com/html/t10-main.html

I think what Camano meant was develop what we have. Provide incentitives to our local economy and a greater sense of self-efficiency. Why do you think we have no large scale local industries? What is your status preference for Puerto Rico?

I understand that there are small scale industries. I am talking about large industries like factories. We can not have the companies that can compete on the scale with the tax breaks; federal and local. The only one I can think of being a large scale factory is Cervezeria India in Mayaguez and Goya in Barcelona. The only way we are going to compete and have a healthy economy is when Puerto Rico can produce and control its economy as a free and sovereign nation.
