Will Trump really help workers?
I did not vote for Donald Trump, but I hope he has a successful presidency and can deliver on some of his more bipartisan campaign promises. One of his major promises was to restore American jobs sent overseas, including increasing U.S. manufacturing jobs. To this end, he has appointed several billionaires to Cabinet posts responsible for this rejuvenation. Like Trump, they have been guided solely by self-interest and are the very people, part of the 0.1 percent, who have made their money by shipping jobs overseas, cutting workers’ benefits, lobbying against raising the minimum wage, and taking an everincreasing portion of the pie. I would like to think we are living in a fantasy where leopards could change their spots. Unfortunately, we are not.
