Jeb Bush to make Americans work more

The only way to get out of the rut, the US economy is in, is to work longer hours, as presidential candidate Jeb Bush claimed Wednesday.

Bush believes, that the Americans should work more to get high salaries and grow the economy.

"We have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours" and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That's the only way we're going to get out of this rut that we're in."

Modern economists claim, that such a wish to make people work more for less payment, is a disadvantageous measure.

Pravda.Ru has already reported, that the Ukrainian President Poroshenko demanded state officials to work 17 hours a day, 7 days a week.
