When it comes to communication and engagement, every issue has its own unique set of opportunities and obstacles.

Economy Boosting Jobs

The Problem

When it comes to policies like increasing the minimum wage, mandating paid sick time, and improving unemployment insurance, the debate boils down to “what workers need” vs. “what businesses need” as though one side comes at the expense of the other. So people can believe that workers need better compensation, while also believing that companies can’t afford to do more.

The Solution

We have to frame job policies in terms of what ALL of us need. Low wage jobs simply can’t sustain families, communities or the economy. Economy boosting jobs are ones that pay enough for people to maintain spending on the basics like utilities, repairs, doctor visits and so on, boosting families, communities and local businesses in the process.
