Also... I have to express BS detection in this cheerleader CNN article.
But hoping for the best.
Your BS detector is working just fine. A cursory check of MS Kavilanz "credentials" reveals two interesting facts: she Journalism major, not an economist; she is reported to have been "excoriated" by a senior CNN writer for making up a quote by a "doctor" about his salary. In other words, just another "I wanna change the world" left-biased (but "balanced") reporterette.
Here in Detroit, Project Hope is a training facility to teach young people manufacturing jobs such as welding, tool and die....etc.
I knew a guy who was a supervisor there for a brief period of time until my company hired him. He said the students had no discipline, no work ethic, no real desire to learn a trade and they showed up when they wanted.
The only reason they were tolerated was because of the state and federal grants the facility was being paid per student........
