What types of jobs will the job guarantee workers do?

The program prioritizes social, economic, and environmental needs. Thus, the job guarantee can be central in greening the economy by prioritizing disaster prevention and preparedness, community rehabilitation and renewal, and food desert relief, to name a few areas of need.

The job guarantee’s scope is larger than the climate emergency or infrastructure needs. It aims to support artists, offer youth apprenticeship programs, expand child and elderly care, and create special needs programs for veterans, at-risk youth, and former inmates.

In practice, job guarantee-like programs have been designed around the needs of people and communities. See the job guarantee world map and program specific pages for real world examples of job guarantee projects. In many cases, the projects are managed and designed by the participants themselves.
