2. Identify growing and potential industries andrepparttar skills they will need in future staff. 3. Design a plan which allows forrepparttar 125962 rapid retargeting of training courses as Community Colleges and vocational schools are traditionally 5 to 15 years behind current needs. 4. Provide substantial tax incentives for businesses to hire inrepparttar 125963 U.S. rather than shipping their jobs to low income countries. 5. Devise “red-tape-less” programs to reward employers with significant tax credits for hiringrepparttar 125964 long-term employed and new trainees. 6. Overhaulrepparttar 125965 processes of State Unemployment Offices by implementing coordinated support programs in which workers participate as part of receiving unemployment benefits and employers participate as a means of meeting their future needs for staff. 7. Provide incentives for employers to hire more part-time workers. Simultaneously, America must reframe its social policy to promote a new work ethic of reduced work hours, along with increased leisure and volunteer activities, to allow more workers to be employed, albeit for fewer hours. Due torepparttar 125966 negative emotional effects of living without work, our society needs to stress high employment rather than high productivity which often translates into fewer workers, working harder and longer.

But this is onlyrepparttar beginning. We are waging a battle against an evil more destructive, more soul-damaging and heart-wrenching, than we've ever experienced before. This is not an enemy that can be dealt with by using sensitivity and negotiation. No, a "kum-by-yah" approach will not satiate this enemy. A "kum-by-yah" approach will not keep our country safe. George W. Bush will. Giving these terrorists a big group hug is not in our President's agenda. Keeping America safe from fear, however, is, and he does what it takes to make sure this is done right. This is what a strong, confident, and faith-filled leader does. This man lovesrepparttar 125961 same creation as I do -repparttar 125962 gently flowing rivers,repparttar 125963 thick canopied forests,repparttar 125964 spirit-filled choirs singing hymns of praise. And as I journey down life's road, savoring each precious, free, moment that I am given, my soul will rest inrepparttar 125965 joy of knowing that I walk underrepparttar 125966 same sky with a man who loves God, loves all of God's people, and will remain strong in order to protect them.
