Sen. Rubio joins me to discuss his office's new report, "The State of the Working (and Non-Working) Man.
Good stuff in general from Marco Rubio. I am still cautious about him after he went squishy on immigration a decade ago, even betraying promises made in order to do so.
Would you say that his use of terms like 'common good' and 'decadence' suggest he is reading the Catholic integrationalists (Deneen, Douthat, etc).?
I would think how they treat veterans would rank well behind disagreeing with the military's woke agenda and the possibility of getting sent off to die in the name of globalism for reasons for not wanting to join.
I am still not convinced Senator Rubio understands the workforce issue. The problem with young men who changed jobs every six months or less is not that they are only getting offered seasonal work. It is that they are not reliable enough to stay at a job long term. There is a deeper cultural issue here that isn't getting addressed. Still this represents a huge improvement over where Rubio was when he first entered the national stage .
It would have been helpful, at the cost of opening another can of worms, to mention that more than those with the right labor, it's those with money and the acumen to leverage the global markets who largely benefit from de-nationalizing, which facilitates a massive shift in power (and values).
Congratulations on such a great interview!
What!? That’s awesome! Looking forward to listening, and congrats, Aaron!
