What if the federal government tries to guarantee everyone a job?
Vox has a provocative article by Dylan Matthews, “What America Would look Life if It Guaranteed Everyone a Job”.
I presume this would try to keep retirees (even me) working as long as possible, maybe well into their 80s, and cut social security dependence.
It would practically force people used to solitary “individual contributor” work into social contact with those in need or at other cognitive levels – note the child care, eldercare, etc.
It is hard to see if less skilled people could do the infrastructure career.
It would also end the “inherited capital” based career I have as a citizen journalist. You could only publish when you were going to get paid for it.
