Now that Democrats think they’re about to assume power again, we are already hearing some familiar phrases from them.
During a recent appearance on ABC News, Rahm Emanuel was speaking about retail workers and said “those jobs are not coming back.”
He then suggested that these workers should just learn to code.
Breitbart News reports:
Rahm Emanuel to Fired Retail Workers: You Can Learn to Code!
Laid-off retail workers should learn to code for new software jobs, says Democrat heavyweight Rahm Emanuel.
“There’s going to be people, like at J.C. Penney and other retail [outlets]. Those jobs are not coming back,” Emanuel told ABC News November 6.
“Give them the tools, six months, you’re going to become a computer coder. We’ll pay for it, and you’ll get millions of people to sign up for that,” Emanuel said. “They are not going back to parts of the retail economy, and we need to give them a lifeline to what’s the next chapter.”
Even if older American retail workers can learn the skills, Emanuel’s plan would likely fail because Fortune 500 companies prefer to hire foreign visa workers instead of hiring the existing supply of American young software professionals.
And the government quietly delivers this resident army of at least 1.5 million white-collar visa workers via the Optional Practical Training program, the H-1B visa program, as well as via the J-1, L-1, H4EAD, E-3, Curricular Practical Training, TN, and B-1/B-2 programs.

If Joe Biden is sworn in as president, America’s job market could change and not for the better.
They are already telling is what they are planning to do.
