Won’t it hinder the people who create jobs if we remove so many financial benefits that they currently receive?


Trickle-down economics--the idea that if the wealthy are doing great, so will the rest of us--has been discredited repeatedly. The truth is that workers are the real job creators. When workers have jobs and money to spend, they create demand, which leads to businesses hiring because they have a reason to expand and produce products for people. This is called the “virtuous circle;” it existed from 1945 until about 1973, when the conservative attacks began–on unions, workers, anyone who was not wealthy.
