There are jobs all over the country, the unemployment rate has steadily declined since 2010 when it was at 10%, it has continued to decline. It was 4.9% in january, and now it is at 4.3% in the US. Germany and the EU have seen similar improvements.
In the US we replaced maybe 50k coal jobs with 300k jobs related to renewable energy. (solar is 200k+ and wind is over 100k, plus biofuels, vehicles, batteries, new power lines, etc) Then you have decarbonization from all the NG jobs as NG has taken the largest dent out of coal like 20+% of coal marketshare.
Now we do have coal areas that were hit hard, but part of that was the hold up in “emergency relief” funding by the Republicans for coal areas like Ohio, WV, PA, Montana, Wyoming, etc. to help create renewable energy jobs in those areas. As soon as the election was over, the relief bill was passed.
The side effect is it push pressure on the oil markets to lower their prices. So you get your 300 dollar rebate 20 bucks at a time at the pump, or just lower cost of goods like food in general. And we spent far less money, then we spent on actually issuing a 300 dollar rebate especially when you start including costs like reduced employment pay outs. It also increased manufacturing, less regulation, more independence, etc. pretty much right down the list of what the Alt-right wanted.
