Rereading this article, I was struck by the idealized illustration run at its head. First, environmentally, do we actually approve of the belching smokestack? Second, the lineup of workers is all male, as is a hugely disproportionate amount of the "recovery" funding's orientation.
The situation does not reflect the very large number of people whose job picture would be a computer screen, or paperwork, or teaching.
In short, it looks like an illustration left over from an outdated socialist tract of the 1920s. This does not look like the present, much less the future. You can do better.
