“In the U.S … the 2020 decline in college enrollment was seven times greater for male than for female students.”
“Among men with only a high-school education, one in three is out of the labor force. For those who have a job, typical earnings are $881 a week, down from $1,017 in 1979.”
“Mortality from drug overdoses, suicides, and alcohol-related illnesses … are almost three times higher among men than women.”
Those on the Left cry about our so-called labor shortage, but the fact is that there are so many young men in the US that end up in gangs, crime, drugs, alcohol, etc., and hence do not become productive members of society.
I think young men should be encouraged to join the military for 24 months or more but that’s just my opinion. They can choose to enter an “institution of higher learning” afterwards without getting jammed up in debt either.
Hopefully the Pentagon gets a thorough lubricated enema and flushes the woke leadership out beginning with Lloyd Austin. Betraying Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen and Coasties by politicizing the Armed Services is unconscionable.
“Defending America from Enemies foreign and Domestic” as I recall and killing people and breaking things is what the US Military mission is and should be. You need men and women focused on that and only that. ■■■■ the rest of this woke bull ■■■■■
