Letter: Better options than tax cuts

Tuesday, December 26, 2017

No one who hasn't already is going to expand their business or hire workers because of the tax cut. (See Michael Bloomberg's 'perspective' in a recent Concord Monitor.) Instead, start an infrastructure program. Repair all of the worn out bridges. Install solar panels and grid scale batteries in Puerto Rico. These will create jobs and even enrich contractors. Raise the minimum wage and build workforce housing so we don't need to have employees who are homeless and on welfare.
