Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and millions of Americans blame the economic decline and loss of good paying jobs to China or Mexico or some other place in the world. Recent figures indicate the fastest growing jobs in America over the coming decades will pay workers about $25,000 a year. That means they are paying workers about $13 an hour. A high percent of these jobs are in some aspect of the health field.Three-fourths of these fast growing jobs pay less than $35,000 a year. Yet, Bernie Sanders insists that if we bring back jobs from China the result will be “13,000,00 high paying jobs.”
On one hand Bernie Sanders attacks selfish wealthy people, and on the other hand, he insists they will pay high wages. Let me inform the good Senator that for those with wealth, the solution is more and more technology and less and less human labor. Sorry, Bernie, they will NOT be offering high wage jobs. So,where does that leave the demand for higher wages?
I will address this issue in the coming weeks. However, there is one certainty, high paying jobs will not be coming back from China nor Mexico!
