Time for Justice, Time for Jobs
Webinar and Congressional Call-In Day: Dec. 17-18
The presidential administration is urging the House of Representatives to pass a job creation bill before Dec. 22. President Obama has said that transportation infrastructure spending will be a significant part of the bill.
Your experience and our studies have shown that the jobs the stimulus produced did not go to the people who need them most – disadvantaged people: low income people, people of color, women and homeless/formerly homeless people.
Now is the time to take action to guarantee that any new jobs bill contains strong workforce equity requirements.
