What would a job guarantee mean for people who do not wish to work in the program?

This job guarantee is a voluntary program for those who seek paid employment. Nonparticipants would still benefit from the program operating in their communities and from the enhanced public services it offers. Those who work in the private sector would enjoy better employment opportunities because the job guarantee improves overall economic and labor market conditions. The program is not targeted to people who cannot or will not seek paid work for a variety of reasons (caregiving, education, health). Other income support programs are needed to strengthen economic security for all.
