During national Infrastructure Week, metro riders in Washington, D.C., were the latest Americans to get an alarming reminder of how badly our infrastructure needs improvement when popular website noted that trains in the nation’s capital catch fire, on average, more than four times a week. Scan the local news across the country, in places like Flint, Michigan, for example, and you’ll see other stories of crumbling infrastructure. These stories of collapsing bridges, trains on fire and undrinkable water are far from just annoyances, they are a clear sign that the safety and prosperity of America’s working people is in danger without massive improvements.
