VIDEO: Biden Says Coal Miners “Can Learn to Program as Well” if Jobs are Eliminated

2020 Democrat candidate Joe Biden suggested Coal Miner jobs could be eliminated for the “green economy” because Coal Miners could “learn how to program as well.”

“I am come from a family and an area where it’s coal mining in Scranton. Anybody who can go down 300-3,000 feet in a mine sure as hell can learn to program as well.”

Biden then explains how some programmers learned through a 19-week training program at a community college. Of course, in reality, there aren’t all that many “programming jobs” that can be obtained after such a short program, especially if someone comes from a background of general labor.
