Bernie Sanders Promises Green New Deal Jobs Will Pay At Least As Much As Fossil Fuel Work
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) envisions a Green New Deal that rapidly phases out fossil fuels. But on Monday, he said that doesn’t mean coal miners, gas drillers and pipeline builders should expect to take a pay cut.
“All they are trying to do is feed their families,” Sanders said at his CNN town hall Monday night. “We have many, many billions of dollars to go into those communities to help workers get the training … they need to get jobs that will pay them as much or even more.”
