We Need Jobs/Green Jobs Especially during a Pandemic and Economic Collapse


Whenever states ultimately open, Americans know that we have only begun to feel the effects wrought by COVID-19. Despite spending trillions of dollars on recovery packages, most Americans are hurting, with dwindling finances and options. While their have been some efforts by Democrats to propose giving the American people money directly, most people don't hold out any serious hope of such things becoming reality, having to clear resistance from corporate Democrats and Republicans. However, Americans can easily imagine bailing out struggling businesses, and so the question becomes which sectors should we save as we begin to rebuild our society after COVID-19?

As a result of the virus, many industries may experience economic hardships and job losses and will require assistance from the government. When it comes to stimulus funding in your state’s energy sector to protect jobs, which industry should your state government prioritize?


Green Energy: 75%


For the past several years, the biggest hurdle for tackling the Climate Crisis hasn't been understanding or technological know-how, it's been overcoming people's natural resistance to change. Now everything has already changed, and as we rebuild, Americans in staggering numbers want to support green, renewable energy and leave fossil fuels in the dustbin of history! We cannot continue to make the same mistakes, and pour our money into dying industries that are the very agents of our own destruction.


We must take this incredible tragedy that has befallen all of us, in which everything has changed and transmute it into a rebirth of a more sustainable and socially conscious society! Just because it's the right thing to do, and it's what the people want, doesn't mean we'll get any of it, given the state of our government and our "leaders," unless we put pressure on all our representatives through a broad and enduring movement of people, demanding change. Don’t miss this chance to change our country for the better. Join us every Tuesday, in growing solidarity and power until we take back our democracy from amoral special interests, and greedy politicians: Don't Shop on Tuesdays!
