No mention of the GOP-led push to reduce SNAP benefits, which have been helpful–but certainly not a cure-all–for reducing food “insecurity.” Greater unionization, an economy, a Congress & executive branch that promoted an economy and tax code that favors creation of living wage jobs would make a big difference too. That and offering inexpensive/good quality training in trades as well as academia. Most plumbing & electrical work, especially repairs & upgrades, is unlikely to be outsourced and there are plenty of people who cannot do DIY repairs–while already some legal work has been.
