Listen to this call as we discuss the need for a government-subsidized jobs program, in order to create an economy where there is a job for everyone who needs one. Melissa Young, Director of the Heartland Alliance National Initiatives on Poverty and Economic Opportunity, speaks about HR 2770: Pathways Back to Work Act of 2013. The relationship of HR 2770 to economic legislation which PDA already endorses, such as HR 2000: The Humphrey-Hawkins 21st Century Full Employment Act and the 2014 “Better Off Budget” of the Progressive Caucus, is also covered.
