The concept of guaranteed work is being floated ahead of the 2020 elections — and it’s an idea that’s worked to varying degrees in other countries.

    And so, what is the grand program that Bernie has said will be the magic? Nothing but hard work and tenacity will move a family forward.

    She doesn't work for what she gets. She is as corrupt as Trump and lies about as much.

    No, you have no reason to be a good employee if your money is guaranteed. Work your way up, that's how the people that built this country did it.

    Unemployment at record lows translates into plenty of jobs out there now. So why is this the right time for a federal jobs program?

    How many really hard days of work do you think she has done? I mean really hard work days. When I hear people say this and then see them when they try to use any tool , shovel, broom , mop etc ,they look so awkward as if they've never used it in their life.

    Argentina went broke and citizens weren’t allowed to withdraw more than 400 dollars. South Africa is broken and they are dragging people from their homes to shoot them. Stop comparing America to lesser countries. We don’t follow them they follow us. Bernie needs to disappear after 30 years of living in a coma in Congress.

    The government was never envisioned as a large employer much less a guaranteer of jobs for people that only work 100 days a year! Oh wait... they already do that, they are called Congressmen!

    We all want to work for free. Just feed us the same food and keep us in a barn.
