Getting America Back to Work: Federal Policies to Support American Job Seekers

Employment is the cornerstone of American identity and the foundation on which the American Dream is realized. We believe the opportunity to work and advance in employment will lift up our families, positively impact future generations, strengthen our communities, and make America more prosperous. Today, the opportunity to access and advance in employment is being threatened for millions of American job seekers.
Unemployment & underemployment continue to be high. Roughly 23 million Americans are unemployed and underemployed. Over 50 percent of Americans live in states where unemployment is over 8 percent. Newly returning veterans, youth, those with fewer skills and education, and minorities are disproportionately reflected in unemployment figures that are, for some groups, more than double national averages.
Millions of individuals have employment barriers that keep them out of the labor force. For millions of Americans, employment has been out of reach long before the last recession. These individuals face barriers such as little or no current work experience; few or insufficient skills; lack of transportation or child care; and limited English skills or basic education. They represent youth not connected to work or school, recipients of public assistance, people who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness, people returning to communities from incarceration, non-custodial parents, veterans, refugees, new Americans and many others. When given the opportunity, job seekers with barriers to employment can and do successfully work. The rates of unemployment for these job seekers are often overlooked in official unemployment figures. Many of these job seekers are not collecting Unemployment Insurance.
The path to employment for low-income, chronically unemployed individuals starts with Transitional Jobs (TJ) and Subsidized Employment programs. Transitional Jobs blend temporary wage-paying, real work opportunities, skill development, and supportive services with the goal of transitioning individuals with barriers to employment to work. These programs keep individuals employed and earning a paycheck—even in very weak labor markets. These programs give workers a chance to benefit from employment-based tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit. Transitional Jobs contribute to lowering criminal justice recidivism, reducing public benefits receipt, and improving the lives of children. These programs have positive effects on the health of employers and have positive economic ripple effects into communities. The financial benefits of these programs far outweigh the costs.
