We need jobs

It’s feels like the rhetoric of “we need to create jobs” leads to short/medium term thinking to protect outdated industries.

In reality, educating people well leads to create long term job creation. Great education that inspires creative thinking and agency leads to a workforce full of people creating opportunities for themselves and others.

Giving the factory a tax break is win for the next few years, but investing in schools and education will pay off 10, 20, 30 years into the future.
