1. What is a Federal Jobs Guarantee?

A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create living-wage jobs with benefits for people unable to find full-time work in the private sector. Under this policy, the government would create jobs by investing in health care, education, infrastructure, climate change solutions, and other socially useful goods and services.

 

By reducing the fear of unemployment, a Federal Jobs Guarantee will also increase the bargaining power of all working people from the bottom up to gain higher wages and better working conditions at a time when workers and unions are standing up across the country.

2. A Majority of Democrat, Republican, and Independent Voters Support a Federal Jobs Guarantee 

Polls show strong support for a Federal Jobs Guarantee across political party voters: 89% of Democrats, 74% of Republicans, and 72% of independents. Even in red states like Florida, Texas, and Ohio, 70% of voters support a Federal Job Guarantee.

Support for a Federal Jobs Guarantee in key battleground and red states: 

  • Alabama: 70%

  • Arizona: 69% 

  • Florida: 70%

  • Georgia: 71%

  • Kentucky: 68%

  • Louisiana: 69% 

  • Michigan: 69% 

  • Missouri: 69% 

  • North Carolina: 71%

  • Ohio: 68%

  • Pennsylvania: 68%

  • Tennessee: 69%

  • Texas: 70%​​

  • Wisconsin: 68%

3. A Federal Job Guarantee Can Increase Turnout Among
Low-income Voters

Low-income voters with a household income of less than $50,000 make up 40% of the U.S. voting population, but vote at a lower rate than middle and high-income voters. Low-income voters of all races, often feel neglected by both political parties and are more likely to believe that voting will not directly benefit their lives.  

 

Increasing turnout among low-income voters can help Democrats win in red states and key battleground states. For example: In 2020, Donald Trump won Texas by 631,221 votes. If low-income voters increase their turnout for Democratic candidates by just 8% (647,105 votes), then Democrats can win Texas in 2024.   

 

Promoting a Federal Jobs Guarantee can empower low-income voters to turn out in higher numbers by making them feel that voting can directly benefit lives economically, and will send a loud and clear message that Democrats are on their side!  

'4. Deep Canvassing' Around a Federal Jobs Guarantee Can Unite White, Black, Latino, and Asian Voters

To unite white, black, Latino, and Asian voters around a Federal Jobs Guarantee, we must go door-to-door in both rural and urban communities and have one-on-one conversations with voters of all races. In these conversations, we must listen with compassion to understand their individual financial struggles and share a vision of economic optimism centered around a Federal Jobs Guarantee. This voter outreach method is known as ‘Deep Canvassing.’ 

 

Studies have shown that Deep Canvassing reaches people on a deeply emotional level and can shift deep-seated attitudes and prejudices in a way that can break down racial and partisan divides. Deep Canvassing combined with a vision of multiracial economic prosperity can unite voters across race, political views, and geography.
