Does spending on infrastructure create other kinds of jobs in the economy because the workers have jobs and have paychecks to spend in the economy if
the workers buy cars with their paychecks auto workers are hired ? Has this ideas ever been refuted ? Do both Democrats and Republicans agree that
infrastructure spending can help the economy ? Since infrastructure jobs are temporary would they then get other jobs they will have paychecks to
spend ? Also did FDR ever say spending on infrastructure would create jobs ? Do infrastructure jobs kill jobs in the private sector ?
Then all of those workers have paychecks that they can spend on groceries, clothing, furniture, cars, houses, utilities, entertainment, appliances,
restaurants, vacations, and all sorts of things. That creates demand in those industries. And that creates jobs. If those companies have enough work,
they can spend some of their revenue to hire more employees or to upgrade their own facilities. See, more demand, more jobs. And government gets its
new stuff built and its old stuff fixed. See. Everybody wins.
