Why we urgently need a federal jobs program!

The coronavirus pandemic has had a devasting impact on the health and lives of Americans across the country. This virus has not only disrupted our regular way of life but has also ravaged the financial wellbeing of tens of millions of Americans. Over 50 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits since the start of the coronavirus pandemic [1]

Even before coronavirus, our economy was far from perfect. Prior to this viral pandemic, 44% of all U.S. workers were employed in low-wage jobs that paid less than $15 per hour while unemployment rates and low-wage jobs remained disproportionally higher among people of color [2]

A Federal Jobs Progam would not only address our current employment crisis but also create a better economy that improves the quality of life for White, Black, Latino, Asian, Native Americans, unemployed, and low-income workers.

what will a federal jobs program do?

A Federal Jobs Program is a federal policy that would invest government funds into public programs, health care, infrastructure, non-profit organizations, and climate change solutions to create living-wage jobs in communities where livable jobs are not available.

 

In addition to a living wage, jobs created under this program will also provide health insurance, paid sick leave, and paid family leave. A Federal Jobs Program would also increase bargaining power and boost wages for all workers from the bottom-up.

A Federal Jobs Program would be funded by the federal government but administered locally by states, local governments, and Native American tribes. Community input will also be required to help identify local public needs, determine parts of the local economy that are in need of employees, and make recommendations for new job opportunities and projects in their areas.

Why we must elect democrats in 2020

It is 99.9% guaranteed that a Federal Jobs Program will NEVER pass under President Donald Trump and a Republican-controlled U.S. Senate. Historically, Republicans have strongly opposed a Federal Jobs Program while Democrats have largely supported it.  

 

Throughout generations, numerous Democratic lawmakers and candidates have supported a Federal Jobs Program. Most famously was Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt's’ New Deal which enacted a jobs program that played a major role in ending the Great Depression. 

Recently, the Biden-Sanders Unity Taskforce publicly released its policy recommendations in support of a Federal Jobs Program [3]. To pass a Federal Jobs Program we need to elect a Democratic President, Senate, and House. However...

Passing a Federal Jobs Program into law will take MORE than just electing Democrats. We must influence Democrats to publicly support a Federal Jobs Program and hold them accountable after they are elected.

turnout unemployed voters to elect DEMOCRATS who support a federal jobs pROGRAM

50 million Americans are out of work due to coronavirus. Unemployed Americans will represent a large block of voters that can heavily influence the outcome of the 2020 elections. A Federal Jobs Program and their urgent need for employment could be the deciding factor in who they vote for.

In 2016, Donald Trump won the presidency by just 80,000 votes in three states (Michigan, Pennsylvanian, Wisconsin) [6]. Turning out 50 million unemployed voters around a Federal Jobs Program could overwhelming sway the outcome of the presidential election along with key Senate races -- helping Democrats win the Presidency, the Senate, and retain control of the House.

step 2: Donate

It’s no secret that money plays a huge role in winning elections. That’s why politicians are often influenced by the interests of wealthy donors over the needs of working people and low-income voters.  

 

The vast of majority voters cannot afford to give $10,000 to a political campaign. But in recent elections, small-dollar donors (who give $200 or less) have become increasingly powerful. Not only as a way to win elections but as a powerful avenue to influence politicians to support policies and to hold them accountable after they are elected.

 

Small-dollar donations have made up 80% of all individual contribution to 2020 presidential candidates -- giving a total of $924 million.
