The challenges are real: educational attainment, the digital divide, lack of access to reliable transportation, criminal records. These are the systemic barriers people face when seeking sustainable employment.
For those individuals who do have jobs, many of them pay at a rate far below what they need to support themselves or their family.
Reducing Barriers to Employment & Advancement is anchored in the belief that all adults of working age should have the opportunity to obtain permanent employment with a livable wage.
We all know what it means to have a good job. It allows you the opportunity to support and provide for your family.
And there is nothing more dignified than that.
New and increased gifts to Reducing Barriers to Employment & Advancement are doubled by ManpowerGroup from 7/1/23 to 6/30/24 up to $200,000.
