Hillary Rodham Clinton has taken a swing at unemployment, especially when it concerns younger Americans. She suggests that using tax credits could represent a viable option to increase employment among youths.
According to Clinton, offering incentives to businesses should help encourage hiring and training young people. During a South Carolina speech held at a technical college, Clinton proposed offering businesses tax credits worth $1,500 for each new apprentice hired.
But this incentive shouldn’t only address high-school students, but workers at all stages.
“It should be for moms re-entering the workforce after raising their children, to be more independent. It should be for our veterans,” Clinton explained.
This week, Clinton will be further rallying support and bringing in donors for her campaign. And luckily, she will be embraced by an all-too-familiar crowd of Democrats.
The Clinton’s have long benefited from this fruitful relationship after Bill Clinton’s 1992 run, which marked an essential moment for California and presidential politics. Since 1992, no Republican managed to carry the state, despite the fact that before ’92, Republicans cad carried the state in nine out of 10 elections all through 1952.
In fact, Bill Clinton’s victory marked California’s shift from a purple state to a blue state and since then, the state has been more than generous with the Clinton pair. Hillary’s return to California only highlights the “continuation” of this long-term and mutually beneficial love affair involving the Clintons and Democratic donors.
Clinton has been touring several early voting states, highlighting the importance of unemployment rate decrease. But she’s got her eyes set on more than one rabbit. Clinton hopes to offer all 4-year-olds “high quality preschool” in the coming 10 years, as well as reduce parents’ costs of raising small children by seeking tax cuts.
However, the presidential candidate has her work cut out for herself. Jeb Bush, the Republican candidate, has been receiving donations for months now and by the end of this summer, he may hall in close to $500 million.
