Economic Self-Sufficiency

Every citizen deserves the maximum opportunity to achieve economic independence. Employers, workers, the unemployed and underemployed must all work together to create a labor market that provides a living wage and minimizes barriers to employment. Programs provide training, skill development, and job placement, especially for disadvantaged or disabled adults.
