This has already happened. Biden basically said that we all need to learn how to code because it’s the best route to the middle class.
Because we don’t need that many coders, there won’t be much of a middle class anymore, if that’s true. The other problem is that these jobs are supposed to require such high skill levels that by all rights they should have upper middle class salary and benefits packages, not straight middle class ones. We all know why they don’t, (cough cough H-1B cough cough), and if LaunchCode does have placement success, it will only create an even bigger army of CSIT permatemps.
LaunchCode happens to be in the same state office building on Delmar just east of Kingshighway that also hosts the St. Louis NAACP office. That should tell you all you need to know about its intentions. You know the old book Why Johnny Can’t Read. The book for our times could be tiled Why Shaniqua Can’t Code.
