Worker Safety Net

People can’t easily train for their career when they’re struggling to meet basic needs like food, housing, medical care, and child care. Instead of forcing people to take low-wage jobs, our nation’s safety net programs should support millions of people who want to train for a quality career but need support along the way. Realizing the potential of our safety net requires pushing back on efforts to dismantle it, while expanding opportunities for training that leads to good jobs.
