President Joe Biden's infrastructure plan will have an investment of one trillion dollars and has already been approved by the Senate
It is estimated that through the infrastructure plan and the plans derived from it, about 650 thousand jobs will be created. The average salary per year would be $ 70,000, according to Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics.
Large infrastructure projects will seek to boost the economy in rural areas where there are high unemployment rates. However, one of the problems facing the plan is the lack of construction workers, which could cause the United States to grant more temporary work visas for foreign workers, according to Tony Carnevale of the University's Center for Education and Workforce. Georgetown.
Other estimates indicate that the plan will create over a thousand jobs in the long term over the next decade. In this way, by 2030, the income per person in the United States is expected to increase by at least 100 dollars or 10.5%.
On the other hand, the infrastructure plan would open the opportunity for millions to obtain construction jobs over the next ten years. “Creating policies that ensure that women, and especially women of color, can access well-paying jobs in construction will be an important step in creating a more equitable recovery,” explains Marina Zhavoronkova of the America Progress organization.
