Economic Upheavel in U.S. Stark Difference in 2019 Rather Than 1930's Great Depresion

Today we have a diverse nest of felons ripping off banks and the members of banks with elaborate forms of identity theft. This was not a problem in the cities during FD Roosevelts New Deal:You lined up for a large bag of apples and that helped fill your tummy.
Their is also the debate on raising our states minimum wages. This is a strong point in any organizers hand but can be shot down by small business owners who have 1 owner and only a handful of customers with U.S. cash.

The economic pie is not simple. One of the larger questions we have is which types of immigrants can arrive here with what skills and where will they locate to and hopefully have affordable health and transportation bills.

Our working people whetrecent immigrant older level immigrant or multi generation from long ago do not need 100,s of boatloads in our ports. We ought to listen to the piper and open technical schools 2 shifts a day, require labor investigations along with labor rights and this will give our people breathing space for the long haul.
