We don’t need more gig and temp jobs. People can’t even feed their families on those jobs, let alone save for a home, education, and retirement.
What Americans need are full-time jobs with benefits and long-term prospects, but in order to get there, we must invest in our workforce. Lip service is not enough. Politicians talk, but we’ve seen little in the way of action.
We need to put money into the innovative training centers, next-gen industries, and technology of the future. Only by leading the way forward can we generate the types of jobs that will be around in ten or twenty years.
Data shows that the countries which modernize first create far more jobs than those that lag behind. In other words, we need to be on the forefront of change if we are going to raise the standard of living for all Americans.
This means upgrading our workforce, revamping our educational system, investing in entrepreneurship, and leading the world in technological development. We must use our nation’s great wealth to ensure that anyone who is willing to make the effort and work hard has a path towards a more prosperous future.
