“Pete Buttigieg says he can beat Donald Trump in 2020” is the headline of a Washington Post puff piece touting the Left’s latest shiny thing.
The Post’s Robert Costa neglects to mention the recent wave of shootings in South Bend. It’s too busy kissing up to Buttgieg as he takes shots at manufacturing.
“Change is coming, ready or not,” Buttigieg told the crowd. “There is a myth being sold to industrial and rural communities: the myth that we can stop the clock and turn it back,” and he touted his attempts in the city to assist the workforce with training and skills programs.
The biggest employers in South Bend are Notre Dame, hospitals, a casino and the government.
Buttgieg hasn’t created tech jobs. He’s perpetuated misery while finding gimmicks to build his own brand. South Bend is poor, miserable and broken.
In his book, Buttigieg derides the “moribund Studebaker corridor”, promising to make South Bend into a “Silicon Prairie” with “data centers and start-ups”. But despite seven years in power, there are relatively few such jobs in the city. Only 1.5% of South Bend’s jobs are in the computer and mathematical sector, and the occupation is listed as one of South Bend’s “least specialized”, meaning that it has dramatically fewer workers in this sector than most places in America.
