Unemployment Isn't Working

I had never paid much attention to this used car lot on Clinton Street in Fort Wayne, though it is unusual in that they only sell white vans. One day, I was driving south on Clinton, when I spotted the sign on M&W Motors: "Unemployment Isn't Working."

Are they simply stating the obvious; If you're unemployed, you are not working, or are they commenting on our country's economic downfall? Large scale unemployment, which has been extreme in industrial cities like Fort Wayne, seems to be the permanent condition that our business and political rulers want, but it is certainly not 'working' as a policy when it damns millions of our people to poverty.

M&W Motors is across the street from Leonard's Lane.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
