Low-wage Work: Principles for ARRA

 

From: Phil Sparks, co-director

The Working Poor Families Project (WPFP), along with 20 other nonprofit organizations working on low-wage issues, today released a set of “principles” that they are urging national policymakers to review with the passage of the landmark federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The principles (www.workingpoorfamilies.org) urge policymakers to focus on struggling low-wage families and unemployed workers though: the creation of jobs; programs that build worker skills; targeting distressed communities to receive a portion of the Act’s new funds; and maintaining accountability on how the funds are spend.

The WPFP is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that focus on low-wage work issues and works in 25 states.

The Fairness Initiative on Low-Wage Work has produced a podcast detailing the WPFP principles, which is available at www.lowwagework.org/podcasts.htm. The podcast features Deborah Povich of the Working Poor Families Project. She can be reached at (434) 990-4220 or dpovich@crosslink.net.
