Having grown up in a majority working class town, the "outsourcing jobs" narrative was very prevalent. I knew lots of adults who blamed outsourcing and large companies for their inability to find a job. The same adults had iPhones. I always saw this as an ironic, considering many of these people could not buy iPhones if it weren't for outsourcing.
I agree with this proposal, but I'm interested to see how such a proposal could be sold to Americans who fundamentally lack an understanding of how globalization affects their daily life. To many lower class voters, CORPORATE income tax represents a crucial redistribution of income and equality of the playing field. Whereas a tax on shareholders using income tax rates represents the types of taxes that low income voters resent.
Any proposal can make sense or be economically viable, but unfortunately that doesn't translate into popular support. I think the real challenge faced will be convincing voters that this is in their best interest.
