WASHINGTON – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) will hold a press conference Thursday to announce the introduction of the Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act. This bill would provide opportunities for individuals to find work that pays a living wage. Sen. Cory Booker is the sponsor in the Senate.
The Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act would guarantee that adults in participating communities who want to work can do so, in a job that pays a living wage and provides benefits like health insurance, paid sick leave, and paid family leave. When it was originally introduced in 2018, this was the first federal jobs guarantee legislation ever to be introduced in Congress.
