It died out of work will join a union well a virtual one at least they call themselves the union of unemployed.
And already stand a 100000 strong their goal is to see congress pass a 250 billion dollars stimulus package.
And then an extensive and long term jobless benefits the man leading Mets are joins us now Rick Sloan hybrid could have it.
Hey bill good to see if we're gonna get that money right.
We have a huge problem in this country -- -- being made there were 27 point six.
Million people who were -- part of the real unemployed.
And for that and this is there -- Great Depression.
And we got to get them back to work and the only way that we seem to be able to do that.
Is to offer them good job with something like the Works Progress Administration 2.0.
You know in the 1935.
Which is a whole lot later than Garfield.
We put eight million people the equivalent of eight million people to work.
In one year if we did it then we can do it now.
Are but a lot of that was infrastructure to divert the money that we've committed to infrastructure.
-- some various stimulus programs of late.
Because as yields are very few jobs are certainly not the bang for the buck that we imagine.
And now actually there's a -- now -- -- -- -- about so you're rolling the -- speaking going deeper.
Will solve the problem -- just got to travel new game plan.
This is a whole new game plan no it isn't -- -- anymore it's one of the -- What was tried before Neil was the equivalent of the works prime -- administration.
Big dollar big construction projects.
Works Progress Administration.
Had a requirement that 85%.
Of the money spent had to go for wages.
What we're looking for is in.
Influx of money into people's pockets so that they can become consumers again.
If you have a quarter.
Well you know I had a vote more money in their pockets just cut the workers.
The people -- boycott their party candidate mean that -- already -- -- -- -- workers may be today.
The ones who are working up to thirty some odd million -- -- and trying to help out in two states to you for that.
But maybe if you give those people more money and businesses more of their money.
Then maybe that circulates around and gets more people hired in the boom the factories it's worked and we tried that with the first stimulus that didn't work and you're right about that -- -- -- there were already here we -- Bill Clinton.
We tried that and every time we tried that and we've we've given more money and put it in people's hands.
It has it has on the track and and the more we do it the -- it does -- We're gonna disagree about this 100 and we -- side of catcher which is which is this.
When you have a fifth of your population.
Or out of the workforce.
That means -- fifth than your consumer power is also sidelined.
It until you get them back in the game.
But but you're hearing what they're not there yeah I think service also -- -- Rick I do I think the world that you aren't telling you focus on the fourth fifth and and -- stand seek and how bad winds that then you've got five -- and we're doing great.
We love to have five this battle that we are really yeah but when you -- -- Laurie Bennett Williams and warm Washington and more government -- the one that.
The other four -- are saying.
This is is is really weird it's stupid it's -- ass backwards.
You're not getting get the tax cuts you're asking for opinion not gonna get the deficit reduction that you're asking for.
Until we get back to full employment.
And the only way I'm telling you -- again a full.
Employment standardizing the one -- with more benefits and more state jobs that never turn out or -- Well in 1935 they weren't fake.
They were actually.
And still exist are the bright lights of their work done we will watch -- boys have been a pleasure to be regardless for its -- thanks still it was great fun we'll remember.
