‘Green New Deal’ Aims to Remake the U.S. Economy
Posted On: Feb 08, 2019
Feb. 8, 2019 | ECONOMY | […] In very broad strokes, the Green New Deal resolution introduced yesterday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey, (D-MA), sets goals for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture. In the process, it aims to create jobs and boost the economy. The bill calls for a “10-year national mobilizations” toward accomplishing the goals. The resolution also states that the Deal “must be developed through . . . partnership with frontline and vulnerable communities, labor unions, worker cooperatives [and others]” and must ensure the creation of “high-quality union jobs,” guaranteed jobs “with a family-sustaining wage,” and strengthen and protect “the right of all workers to organize, unionize, and collectively bargain free of coercion, intimidation, and harassment.” National Public Radio
