Propping up the struggling fossil fuel industry with yet another government bailout is not an answer for the workers impacted by this crisis – it’s just a way to line the pockets of Big Oil CEOs, while everyday people are left to fend for themselves.
If the government is looking for a way to reinvigorate our economy and help us come out stronger on the other side of this crisis, it should be funding job retraining programs and renewable energy companies, accelerating the just transition that is already underway in many parts of the country.
Tell Trump and the federal government: no bailouts for Big Oil and the fossil fuel industry.
To: Donald Trump and the Federal Government
Don’t give another bailout to the fossil fuel industry. Instead, please consider funding and supporting job retraining programs and the renewable energy industry.
