Trump's Apprenticeship Program Should Help Train Coal Miners For Solar Jobs 21.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Last week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that boosts American  apprenticeships . It will double the amount of money for apprenticeship grants and move control of the program away from the federal government to the private sector. Often with these internships, workers are paid while being trained for a new job, so it preferentially benefits the  nearly half  of Americans finding it hard to make ends meet. This program could be a real boon for industries like solar, which are desperate  for skilled workers, as well as existing workers trapped in declining industries. Trump has repeatedly shown great interest in America’s coal industry, which has faced a steep decline in profitability. One major American coal company after another has  filed  for bankruptcy, and coal is declining globally. Even  China  is moving away from it. The industry is shedding jobs, and it has an enormous negative impact on health. Coal is responsible for killing about as many Americans every year from pollution ( ...

Why Did Democrats Ossoff And Parnell Lose Their Congressional Races In Georgia And South Carolina? 21.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Democrats around the country were hopeful that they could win two special elections Tuesday in what had long been “safe” Republican districts in Georgia and South Carolina. Instead, both Democratic candidates — Jon Ossoff and Archie Parnell — narrowly lost. Why did they lose? Pundits and politics will be debating this question for a long while, but here’s one factor that made a huge difference: Low turnout among African Americans. If this sounds familiar, it should. It explains why Hillary Clinton lost Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to Donald Trump last November by a total of 77,000 votes. Had she won those three states, she would have won the Electoral College and would be occupying the White House today. Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign in the Atlanta suburbs attracted the most attention and the most money. Last November, no political expert expected Georgia’s 6th Congressional district to be a hotly-contested swing district. For many years it was represented by right-wing Republican Congressman ...

Why the White Worker Theme Is Harmful 21.6.2017 American Prospect
This article appears in the Summer 2017 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  “After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves.”  —Barack Obama, Farewell Address, Chicago, January 2017 After three losses to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, a trifecta last accomplished by Presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, there was much hand-wringing among Democrats about the loss of the South and the vanishing loyalty of Southern whites. William Galston and Elaine Kamarck at the Progressive Policy Institute argued that the electoral math made the South the true presidential battleground; that Democrats could not win by being more liberal or hoping to motivate black and poor voters to increase their voter participation. Thomas Edsall and Mary Edsall similarly warned in the pages of The ...

NBA draft: Big men adapt to ‘positionless’ blueprint 21.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Former Utah forward Kyle Kuzma laid out what he felt made him so rare as an NBA prospect. “The NBA’s turning into four men/threes who can pass, defend, shoot, rebound,” he said roughly a month ahead of draft night. “That’s kind of my role, really. Talking to teams, I feel like I’m really versatile. I feel like there’s not that many four men in the draft that have my similar skill set.” And yet, more four men trying to break into the NBA are trying to sell themselves that way. At the NBA draft co...
