An experienced and savvy businesswoman herself, Ivanka also added that even if the economy is doing good under her father’s administration, with unemployment down to 4 %, employers are still concerned that there may not be enough workers with the right skill sets to fill vacancies.

The council to be set up will focus on a "holistic approach" to the development skills, whether it's during a person's elementary and high school years or their working years. Ivanka added that it “will bring all of government together to devise a national workforce strategy."

Yes MORE debt just get the whole population in collage debt before replacing them with machines completely. Not everyone can become a software developer its literally impossible to turn more than 20% of the populace into a technician or developer and even if you did they all wouldn't get hired for already taken positions anyway. What are they gonna do when 70% percent of the population is unemployed bomb 90% of inhabited land? That would be suicide and it wouldn't even get that far. Tax automation out the ass or get ready for scorched earth total war there would nowhere for anybody to hide until its over when it reaches that point.
