All work is skilled work. Every job should be a "good" job.
Better pay equals...
-Federal Minimum Wage needs to be $25/hr and tied to the Consumer Price Index.
-Construct new power transmission lines to reshape our electric transmission grid and create new employment.
-Create a 21st Century WPA. Let's not wait for a depression. There's work to be done now!
More economic activity.
-Replace the aging water grids in our small towns and cities.
-Re imagine small-business financial assistance programs to better serve the needs of innovative, high-growth potential startup firms.
-We need to maintain demand at levels consistent with full employment. This is best accomplished through better wages.
