The Macho Stimulus Plan

Randy Albelda writes for the Boston Globe, “President-elect Barack Obama has convincingly argued for a stimulus package that creates jobs that produce things we desperately need and want. Yes, we need bridges, roads, and schools. And yes, we should invest in green jobs — stimulating the economy as well as building a strong basis for economic growth in the future. However, there is a crucial missing link in this package – both on the employment side and the investment side. That link is women. This might as well be called the macho stimulus package.”
