Don't really see its purpose. Recommend redirecting to Guide to Job. ThunderkatzHo! 17:40, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

I agree. If no one says anything, I'll redirect in a day or so. ТyTalk. 03:14, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Seems fine to me. Plenty of economic and political considerations. Consider something said. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:29, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
It belongs in funspace. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:33, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
No it doesn't. Please state your reasons, after reading beyond the silly lead. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:58, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
The hyperbole extends beyond the first paragraph: (1) Tenant-farmers were not exactly self-employed. (2) The labor movement did not make the middle class, only obsoleted use of the term "middle class" as a snarl word. (3) A job is not a status-symbol quite yet. (4) Mercantilism is not currently a dominant school of economic thought. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:16, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
(2) Yes it did. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:46, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
(1) No, but they had a semi-reliable source of food. (3) Maybe not "quite yet", but look around you. (4) The article does not mention mercantilism, it addresses modern Reagan-era attacks on the union movement and job security in general. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:59, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

If the links to this page are from articles mentioning jobs in the economic sense, then redirecting to this page to an article about the biblical Book of Job is a dumb idea. This article isn't great as it is, & needs a rewrite, but there is scope for an article around these themes. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 06:31, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

I agree, it could certainly use improvement. Redirecting to the Book of Job is senseless, obviously. So is funalization. It just needs more work, not destruction. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:46, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Bump. I don't really see much worth keeping here, as-is. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:58, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
