National Investment in Subsidized and Transitional Jobs for the Hardest to Employ: Ensuring All Workers Benefit from a Federal Jobs Package

Aug 01, 2011
  • Description

Far too many Americans continue to feel the strain of long periods of unemployment and hardship, and a disproportionate number of low-income individuals, minorities and those with barriers to employment remain disconnected from the labor market. A federal jobs package that includes these investments will ensure that large numbers of unemployed Americans have access to employment and income and our nation's most vulnerable job seekers will benefit to access to employment opportunities. Tackling our current unemployment crisis by aggressively creating and maintaining jobs for the unemployed and disadvantaged while creating the conditions by which employers can maintain and grow their businesses will drive the nation toward full economic recovery and viability.
