Pete Buttigieg on Budget & Economy

Democratic Presidential Challenger; IN Mayor

 


Government investment can help minority businesses

We're talking about generational poverty, generational dispossession that's a result of a combination of racist policies over the years and the effect that poverty and mass incarceration have. We're investing in neighborhoods that have been historically disinvested in. We opened a small business resource center in an area that was not getting the kind of attention that it needed because we know that entrepreneurship will empower not just minority business owners, but minority employees.

We should support workers going through changes

It's not about stopping or reversing technology. It is about making sure that the tectonic social and economic changes can actually work for us. Our generation is likely to change careers more frequently than our parents changed job titles. We've got to make it less of a disruptive event when those changes occur. It's why we need portable benefits. It's why the conversation about Medicare-for-all is so important. It's why we might need to look at guaranteed income for working people.
