The hidden dangers of the Democrats' job guarantee message

Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and others want to guarantee every American a job: If you want work, and can't find it in the private sector, the government will hook you up with a job that pays a living wage and benefits. “There is great dignity in work," Booker declared when announcing his legislation.

Talk about the "dignity of work" is pretty common among champions of the job guarantee. Heck, I've used it when writing about the policy.
