Why are you people waiting for soup when you could be out there strengthening your "Brand" and outsourcing your actual manufacturing to other countries?

Since I closed down my fashion line to focus on helping you schmucks can't you see I have left a yuge vacuum in the sensible pseudo-luxury shoe, handbag, and jewelry market?

Wake up and smell the gruel!

We've known for a long time that there are many jobs, often held by aging workers, that are going to go away and never return as technology replaces them with automation and AI. Those workers are going to have a skillset that means nothing, and it's critical that we retrain those workers to remain strong economically.

So while I usually disapprove of the shiatshow that is most of the Trump administration's policies, but I fully support their efforts to provide financial assistance to allow workers to retrain themselves without losing their home and livelihoods... wait, they're not doing that?

Well, at least they're addressing the massive problem with discrimination against elderly workers attempting to break into new fields without decades of experience... wait, they're not doing that either?

Well, at least they're supporting efforts to lower the cost of retraining programs such as college tuition so workers can afford to do so with their meager savings as a result of decades of corporate exploitation... wait, they're not doing that either?

What ARE they doing exactly? Oh, telling people they should learn new skills despite not having income or savings, and then try and get a job in a new field where nobody wants to hire a 55 year old entry level worker?

Fark them.

It's not "tone-deaf", it's the gods-honest truth (which, from a Trump, is as rare as a unicorn astronaut).  Telling people an unpleasant truth is treating them like adults.

So my buddy that is a Network Security engineer who has been furloughed because of the pandemic and it looks like he will be permanently laid off should go into a new career because Network Security Engineer jobs aren't coming back?

These people are idiots that think people are dumber than then so they can tell them anything. Most of the people that are laid off are not laid off because their former careers are obsolete, they were laid off because we were forced to shut down, and due to that, their jobs were either not safe to do during a pandemic, and or their companies decided to cut them to save money because the pandemic affected their revenue. These people do not need a new career and training for one will not get them a new job while we are in any form of shut down. What they need is government assistance to get them through this until we have a vaccine and everything can start up again. I wish these twits would stop lying to people.

PyritePider has a point! The sudden loss of millions of jobs and shrinking of the job market due to a recession fueled primarily by the pandemic and artificially pumping the economy when things were good so that there would be no real means of doing so when shiat went sideways is EXACTLY LIKE workers from a singular, failing industry who refuse to look at any other form of work because mining coal is their "way of life."

TOTALLY the same.
 
2020-07-15 9:26:49 AM  
Even ignoring the fact that telling people to try a different field during a pandemic when the jobs are not there as if the thought had never crossed their minds is entirely unhelpful, if you decide to rush ahead with this particular message you should probably find a spokesperson who has actually worked at some point in their life.

The Madd Mann: Well, at least they're addressing the massive problem with discrimination against elderly workers attempting to break into new fields without decades of experience... wait, they're not doing that either?


The "decades of experience" is the problem.

When I was out of work for a bit at one point I was looking for anything that would tide me over a few months.

Routine data entry, no interpretation or analysis? Bachelor's required.
Patient transport at a hospital? Bachelor's, plus Basic Life Support, plus at least a year of experience.
Testing a shiatty app for a shiatty local pizza chain? Bachelor's, plus at least 3 years using Android apps.

Hospitals would want years worth of experience with their proprietary electronic records system to simply work as a tech.

The "entry-level" jobs either pay next to nothing (no one can live on their own at $10 an hour- hell, my rent would be more than half the month's pay), or require things that make them not "entry-level" at all.

True entry-level jobs are rare and getting rarer. We had need for a guy to sweep the shop at the family business, general go-fer stuff. $14 an hour, no education besides GED needed, will train the OSHA requirements.

We had a line out the door for one position.

Well, that was also tone deaf. But there's tone deaf during "normal" times and tone deaf during the worst crisis America has experienced in 75+ years.


"Tone deaf." Yeah, it's "tone deaf" to tell people in a industry where their bosses STILL try to cut corners and get them killed while assuming no responsibility and try and blame the government's regulations are the reason they cut corners in safety protocols. It's also "tone deaf" to pretend an industry that was being strangled to death by its own twin (oil and gas industry) as their job numbers surged up while the comatose twin (coal) was basically gasping for breath. It was "tone deaf" to tell them they had to LEAVE their damn "heritage" just like their great-great-great grandparents did when they were probably some poor and uneducated schmuck starving over in Europe. WHO ALSO HAD TO LEAVE THEIR ENTIRE LIFE BEHIND TO START A NEW ONE JUST FOR A BETTER OPPORTUNITY AT LIFE. ALL WHILE FORGETTING THAT LAST PART IS WHAT MADE THEM PIONEERS OF THIS NATION.

2020-07-15 9:31:49 AM  
I think you guys are being to hard on Ivanka. Obviously, they wouldn't put a plan like this forward with out a provision to pay your cost of living while you re-train in a new field, and then while you try and get a job when you have zero practical experience in that new field.

Right? I mean, this Administration wouldn't just put a Band-Aid on a severed artery, would they?

It may be the truth, but coming from the party that has spent the last four decades trying to turn American workers into little more than corporate serfs by linking employment to healthcare, stripping away worker's protections, preventing them from saving money in order to limit job mobility, and making education unaffordable - it's also more than a little tone-deaf.

Retraining is so uncommon and so difficult because it's THEIR FAULT. And the first step to any real solution is to remove them from power.

What really gets me is that this has been being preached by the left for how long? And this administration has fought this until now. And you know why they are embracing this idea of training for a new career at this moment? To tell people that it is their fault that they do not have a job during this pandemic because they had a job that was obsolete, which is not the case for most of the people that were laid off due to the pandemic

LOL, I seem to remember Hillary saying something like this right up front in order to advocate for job training programs ect.. So instead they chose the guy who lied to em about bringing their jobs back let him throw spaghetti at the wall (possibly literally) for three and a half years all to have his daughter to tell em, "Yeah Hillary was right after all". The most farked up [art about this is that a good cross section of his supporters will later unironically use trumps utter failures and their results as an excuse to vote for the next egotistical nutjob who comes along blaming "the others" for everything wrong in their life.

Suggest that coal miners should look for other work because their industry is dying? fark you, you worthless lib. We're gonna dig all the coal even if no one wants it.
