I generally am in favor of this idea, as the globalization and automation of the workforce has left local workers in economic distress. We failed to provide for our workers while chasing profits. That said, I would like to see the scope expanded to include free or low cost retraining programs for industries in decline. A current example is the retraining of hard working miners in WV to become hard working coders, which has seen great success. These folks have been able to diversify their skills and can still ensure the financial health of their families instead of falling into poverty. Looking forward, the next industrial revolution will be as a result of AI and IoT integration. This tech is a lot closer than we think and will displace many jobs in the near future. We should be building the foundation for retraining efforts now so we can be a economic and thought leader in the world.
