This is the “Federal Jobs Guarantee” from Ms Cortez.
Alexandria endorses a Federal Jobs Guarantee, because anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment.
A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create a baseline quality for employments that guarantees a minimum $15 wage (pegged to inflation), full healthcare, and paid child and sick leave for all. This proposal would dramatically upgrade the quality of employment in the United States, by providing training and experience to workers while bringing much-needed public services to our communities in areas such as parks service, childcare and environmental conservation.
Furthermore, a federal jobs guarantee program would establish a floor for wages and benefits for the nation’s workforce. This program would provide a baseline minimum wage of $15 an hour and guarantee for public workers a basic benefits package, including healthcare and childcare. By investing in our own workforce, we can lift thousands of American families out of poverty.
Where Alexandria talks about this:

Bloomberg: Leading Democrats Are Backing One of the Most Radical Economic Plans in Years
Bernie Sanders utopia which worked so great in those countries(AGAIN Sarcasm)
These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?
These idiots never say how they are going to pay for everything. They always forget to mention the middle class pay 30-40% income tax, another 10% local income tax, plus another 15%+ VAT. People compare it to US tax rates where effective rates are half of the actual rates. Over 40% of the US isn’t even paying income tax. Who’s going to tell those people they need to start paying 40%? People in those socialist countries don’t get tax deductions, so they pay the actual rates you see.
