WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT?
Recent polls show that voters trust Donald Trump more than President Biden to do a better job on the economy by a wide margin of 22 points; putting Democrats at great risk of losing the Presidency, the Senate, and House in 2024.
Despite the economic achievements of President Biden, millions of Americans are still struggling to afford the necessities of life and have a grim outlook on the economy.
Publicly supporting a Federal Jobs Guarantee can inspire economic optimism among voters by sending a powerful message that Democrats can provide economic relief to working-class and low-income voters of all races.
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.
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.
