(ed: and a very sound plan it is..)
Bernie Sanders has a plan to solve America’s wage stagnation and its long-neglected infrastructure: tax the super-rich and massively profitable corporations – then use the money to fix the multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure overhand left behind by decades of neglect and hire Americans at $15/hour plus full healthcare to do the work.
Business leaders have protested that this will make it hard for them to retain employees who are paid below-living wages and who don’t get health care.
They’ve threatened to fire all their low-waged employees and replace them with robots.
Sanders hasn’t responded, but the solution is obvious: tax the robot-owners and use the money to hire their former workers to fix our nation’s crumbling roads – dams – waterworks – power-lines – schools and other public infrastructure.
