Jesse Jackson Jr. claims the iPad is killing American jobs! [video]

Jesse Jackson Jr. is pointing the finger firmly in the direction of Apple and Steve Jobs, claiming they are responsible for killing American jobs.

It seems Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn’t taken into account the amount of jobs Apple has created in many other business areas. Take a look at the video after the break. Then make sure you pop back here and let us know what you think in the comments!
