Education is the new infrastructure.

The reason coal mining jobs are gone is no one is buying coal. No one is building or replacing power plants with coal ones. The jobs won’t come back. Announced the other day; Several midwestern states have hit 52% as the amount of electricity in their states that comes from windmills. That requires technology.

Mexican automotive workers work for $5 and hr. In Detroit it’s $22-$28/hr. Move those jobs to the US and Car prices increase dramatically. But, the plants will become automated. Japanese cars are made in the US for sale in the US. The only way they could do it was to build plants that are almost completely robotic. Auto jobs aren’t coming back to the US.

That’s why a well educated workforce is the only answer.
