Plans for the future!!!!

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s have many plans to jump start the economy. The plans listed below are in process, but will take sometime. Obama states, “The challenges the Americans are facing will be met.”

Provide $50 billion to Jumpstart the Economy and Prevent 1 Million Americans from Losing Their Jobs: This relief would include a $25 billion State Growth Fund to prevent state and local cuts in health, education, housing, and heating assistance or counterproductive increases in property taxes, tolls or fees.

Create New Job Training Programs for Clean Technologies:
The Obama-Biden plan will increase funding for federal workforce training programs and direct these programs to incorporate green technologies training, such as advanced manufacturing and weatherization training, to help Americans find and retain stable, high-paying jobs.

Boost the Renewable Energy Sector and Create New Jobs:
The Obama-Biden plan will create new federal policies, and expand existing ones, that have been proven to create new American jobs.

Raise the Minimum Wage:
Barack Obama and Joe Biden will raise the minimum wage, index it to inflation and increase the Earned Income Tax Credit to make sure that full-time workers earn a living wage that allows them to raise their families and pay for basic needs.
Ensure Freedom to Unionize:
Obama and Biden believe that workers should have the freedom to choose whether to join a union without harassment or intimidation from their employers.
