On the heels of Finland dropping its experiment with universal basic income, Bernie Sanders wants to roll this out:

Quote:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is set to announce a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one,” The Washington Post reports.

The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American.

Sanders's office has yet to release the details of the plan's funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large

What will these jobs consist of?
Where will the funding for it come from?

Why $15 an hour. Just give everyone $200,000 a year job.

Only way such things are sustainable is with a huge growth in the capitalist economy, and an accompanying increase in the value of labor required for it due to supply & demand.

Somehow I doubt Bernie will be able to create an environment conducive to bringing that much growth to America's business. Which means he wants to go the route of Venezuela, making the government step in to dictate & run the economy. Right into the ground.

Neo-Commies are fucking clueless. :roll: They keep making the same mistakes, yet expect a different outcome. Too many people have no concept of cause & effect regarding macro scale humanity and economics.

Somehow I think the critical part of this is the "or wants one". I'm sure ol' Bernie will be taking care of all those folks as well.

"or wants one" refers to a joint.
