Sanders says government jobs can help stop the school-to-prison pipeline

With the Senate debating reform of No Child Left Behind, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., spoke on Wednesday about other issues affecting young Americans. While acknowledging that "No Child Left Behind must be reformed," Sanders focused on early childhood education and youth unemployment.

"This is an issue of crisis proportions that we are not addressing," Sanders said of youth unemployment. The average real unemployment rate for white 17-20 year-olds is 33.8 percent, according to an Economic Policy Institute report cited by Sanders. That number includes those who have no job, those who are working part-time but would prefer full-time work and those who have given up on looking for work altogether. For young African-Americans, the real unemployment rate is 51.3 percent.

"It is no great secret to anyone that without work, without education, and without hope, people get into trouble," Sanders said. "They get into destructive activity or self-destructive activity." Sanders noted that the United States has more people in prison than any other country, including communist-led China.

While some would see that as a reason for criminal justice reform, Sanders confined his case to creating better opportunities for young people. "It makes a lot more sense for us to be investing in jobs and in education than to be spending billions of dollars on jails and incarceration."

Sanders' solution to rampant youth unemployment is a simple one: Give state and local governments money to hire young workers. Specifically, he argues for $5.5 billion to employ one million people between ages 16 and 24. Job training would also be included in that appropriation.

"Some people would call $5.5 billion a lot of money," he said. "It is. But it's a lot less expensive to provide jobs and education to our young people than to lock them up and to destroy their lives."

None of the other four senators running for president has given a floor speech about the No Child Left Behind replacement bill as of publication.

How about deporting the illegal immigrants and give Americans jobs ...Of course giving folks the room to burn and destroy businesses has to come to an end also..

ya, lots of illegal aliens have taken over the jobs for the youths, a pattern for almost 20 years now, and it's zoomed up into a problem of epic proportions.

Yep. I am sure all the illegals are hogging those American government jobs...

#nocomprehensionskills#love colonelsanders#chickenwiingsoishiiwa!

How are the illegals surviving if they are not taking American jobs ? Bernie wants to give Americans government jobs .You know the make work jobs because of high unemployment. The left loves that... .Then they want to encourage more illegals to enter the work force to drive the unemployment rate even higher. Send the illegals back home and give jobs to Americans and keep folks out of prison The left keeps shooting themselves in the foot .

I believe the point was government jobs.

Illegals are doing the jobs that legal college students would do in their free time.

My time is expensive. If you want any further explanation send me 500 bucks.

If you are short of money, I advise you sue your college, for a poor education.

Best wishes.

no, i wasn't referring to gov jobs, Jacques. Bernie is, as some stop-gap to overcome the lack of jobs for the youths. Which are held by the illegal aliens.

But the jobs held by illegals don't have great career potential.

The problem is bigger than that. And jerks like Trump (well perhaps they are smart in a cunning way), are trying to be divisive.

Education is the key IMO.

Eta. The post refers to government jobs.

The funny thing is, this has nothing to do with undocumented immigrants. It's about creating jobs for Americans. But leave it to the OP to turn it into a argument about them and rioting. Must be a slow news day...

that's not the point, to have great career potential.

look - the crappy jobs that the illegal aliens did - most of us did in our teens (I'm an old, bear with me) and

we used them as stepping stones into other things, other jobs, pay for university tuition, etc etc etc.

since illegal aliens have taken over these crappy jobs (that any american teenager can do) there's a huge vacuum of reliable youth who learned how to do the crappy jobs, a huge vacuum of 'letters of reference' for the next step on on a job-search as well.

A huge chunk of obtaining adulthood has been removed, these past 20 years, and it's all the fault of the illegal aliens and the tardos that hire them.

Sorry . Without a cultural understanding of our economic system, I think you're going to be fixated on the phrase 'government jobs' here.

Just what we need, more government jobs, and more government spending. Does this mean government will be taking over more industries to find something for them to do?

This is not just a problem in the U.S., believe me.

However the fault lies with the people employing, not the illegals. They, the illegals,are a scapegoats.And people like Trump are focusing on them, even though they use them to build their empires. You know how many super rich worry illegals? None that I have met.

You need to change your focus of discontent. I would hope you would know better.

Same thing happening in the UK and Japan. Widen your horizons.

Fact is, as Jacques pointed out, it lies on the employers. Most of those crappy jobs we did in our teens, they now employ undocumented immigrants. They know they're here illegally, that's why they hire them. Cheap pay and they can work the hell out of them without worrying about a lawsuit. How do you think sweatshops come about?

If illegal immigration is really an issue, make it mandatory for all employers to use E-verify. And impose stiff penalties on those who fail to go by the guidelines. It's that simple. But no one will use it because both sides of the aisle benefit too much from them being here.
