Would a job guarantee be ‘work for the dole 2.0’? short answer – no.
This week we’re joined by Connor Jolley, one of the co-authors of the Australian Unemployed Workers Union’s Green Jobs Guarantee, to talk about David Sligar’s prescriptive, unimaginative, and narrow criticisms of a job guarantee.
Don’t you just love to be told your big plans will fail before you’ve even had a chance to try? Even better, when the person saying you’ll fail has no alternative solutions! We wanna get out there and start winning material improvements to people’s lives and that’s going to take bold, imaginative plans that can inspire everyday people to join the fight.
