What is the job guarantee?

The job guarantee is a voluntary public employment program that provides work opportunities with decent wages and benefits to any working-age person who is ready, willing, and able to work. This demand-driven direct job creation program is nationally-funded, locally administered, and addresses social and environmental needs.
