Fixing the Economy: A Brand New Deal
America has fallen into long-term economic decline. Wages have been stagnant since the 1970s. Over the past four decades, America has lost millions of high-wage jobs and failed to replace them, leaving many American workers with a low-paying service job or no job at all. To reverse this economic decline once and for all, we will rebuild American industry, build an 100% renewable energy economy in 10 years, invest $4.6 trillion needed to repair our country’s crumbling infrastructure, rebuild our local communities, raise the minimum wage to $15/hour and tie it to inflation, and make special investments in communities that have been devastated in past decades.
