Amid rising inequality and an uncertain future when it comes to good jobs, it is time for bold, transformative strategies to achieve economic security and dignity for all - including a Federal Job Guarantee. By ensuring that every person who wants to work can have a living-wage job, a job guarantee would eliminate involuntary unemployment, reduce racial inequities, decrease poverty, and raise the floor on low-wage work while building stronger and greener communities. Polling shows widespread public support for a job guarantee, and with the 2020 election at hand, now is a critical moment for racial and economic justice advocates to come together and make a loud and clear demand. We hope that you will join us by signing the Jobs for All manifesto. Learn about why we believe a Federal Job Guarantee is a cornerstone of an inclusive, thriving, and sustainable 21st-century economy; and how you can participate in the Job Guarantee Now! campaign.
