Extra incentive? Worth more? How are they worth more and not equally valued?
I lived through Obama. I didn't want him. I lived through Carter. I didn't want him. I lived through Reagan after he made jobs very tough to find in 1987. I lived through NAFTA which took away more jobs. It seems many presidents on both sides of the aisle have caused a reduction in jobs. If there was an increase, it was only in government jobs to help the poor they created get their food stamps and welfare.
I'm reading a fundamental misunderstanding of what the president can and cannot do.
First, some Presidents did "create" lots of jobs. By accident. Most of the Reagan era jobs were defense related, or the first wave of transplant manufacturing... All while traditional rust belt and northeast jobs were cut.
Clinton lucked out possibly like no other due to the Internet and y2k.
Bush lucked out due to energy and housing bubble jobs. Some.
Obama lucked out due to healthcare expansion.
Now, what Trump promises isn't likely to happen. We might see a few hundred jobs here or there, but the fact he even believes he can create jobs by cutting taxes and regulations is laughable. Mexico is a third of the wages, maybe half in lower paying jobs. China is half of Mexico.Taxes and regulations are irrelevant if your labor costs are 75% lower there and the supply chain is already established.
I wish he could do it. He could, for example, scrap the h1b visa program. He has said as much. But, when one of his top business leader advisors is none other than the CEO of a company that's the number one outsourcing firm in the country, or when his cabinet is full of billionaires who outsourced their way to corporate wealth, I gotta wonder.
Trump understands business. I do not doubt it. But he deeply understands a very narrow segment of business, real estate, not manufacturing, where the lost jobs were.
