Almost 23 million people remain unemployed or underemployed, and poverty continues to grip over 46 million Americans. On top of that, large numbers of adults and out of school youth in the United States are chronically unemployed.
It is both a moral and an economic imperative that we aggressively tackle long-term unemployment. We must implement bold programs that simultaneously provide employment to millions and prepare the nation to succeed in the future.
Amidst the stagnant high unemployment rates across the country and gloomy job growth reports we've been hearing, there is good news. One approach to getting chronically unemployed Americans back to work is actually working: transitional jobs programs.
If you own a business and you haven't heard the words "subsidized employment" or "transitional jobs," you'll probably be interested to know that these effective employment solutions could help save you time and money.
