On ABC, Rahm Emanuel literally says a Biden White House should tell people laid off from retail stores like JC Penney to learn to code. He actually said this. Amazing.

Replying to @CurtisHouck
"There's going to be people like at JC Penney and other retail, those jobs are not coming back. Give them the tools, six monthsm you're going to become a computer coder, we'll pay for it and you'll get millions of people to sign up for it."

We need green energy jobs. Manufacturing *other* than petroleum products and cars would also be good. Also, just straight up rebuilding bridges, filling potholes and replacing aging critical infrastructure. There's a ton of work that needs doing, why is it always coding?

In addition to the hypocrisy, it’s absolute shit advice. It takes years to learn this at a professional level and the entry-level jobs are all done offshore. This is not a field where you can earn anything with 6 months of training.

wasn't there a period 10 years ago where all the laid off entry to mid level coders had to train their overseas/slave visa replacements

He's channeling 1987 here. Didn't work then and won't work now without incentives...

I'm a programmer. It's hard work. Takes a certain kind of person to do it. Most fast-food workers can't get my no-cheese order right or give change without it being spelled out, what's make you think they can troubleshoot any markup language?
