4X the number of people work in renewable energy than coal jobs in the US. Since so many will die young let them collect some SS before they die. It is easier to relocate the individuals than find jobs for 40,000 people where industry has passed them by for 100 years Imo.Relocate 100 workers a week for 5 years should do it. If you offered some people 20k to move a family in 48 hours there would be many takers. There is a dislocation of jobs and needed workers locations where a few grand is all it take to get a match. We need more out of the box solutions. State of Minn has done a great job of retraining people and not letting them starve when a industry dies or moves. Pays off for everyone long term
This 360 turn of the opinion about Trump, which is factual ,is why most Americans hate politicians.
80% of W Virginian's are very conservative, "white Trash", your term. I say they are poor people with few alternatives to a dangerous dying industry. Their Life expectancy is 16 years less than Manhattan residents. The best solution is give early social security at 55 years for the miners and spend 75K to retrain and relocate other miner families to other communities. The idea is to end coal mining in say, 5 years . The people will live better elsewhere ,and we help clean out air. Time to end all coal in the US very soon.
My best friend is an Ophthalmologist. For 30 years from early January until near the end of January he got continuation education in Hawaii with his friends and family. This concept that the DR's are doing little elective surgery during this time frame is true. This Co is going through the learning phase of understanding seasonality of their product. This will repeat itself every year. The 30% new salesforce starting this January has some learning curve too. If you listen to the commentary it appears the projections for sales going forward are already being exceeded in the last 2 months.
Operations needs are different that research leadership.Need both empowered.Hopefully this evolution is ongoing now.
Trumps commentary on the economy rivals a 15 year old for god's sake. The world wants predictability of economic direction. Trump cannot deliver that . He is all over the map several times a day
I want a large increase in estate taxes. Top 1% have 3 trillion in savings. I will pay Federal estate taxes.Probably should pay more You have an estate of 500m the estate tax should move to 50% Why? Our generation ran up the debt and should pay it off, not your children and grand children. Inherited wealth does little to move society ahead long term.Just lets your kids live in style.
