Jobs to Move America

We start from one core belief: that public goods should create the most public good. 

In practice, this means that the billions of public dollars our government spends every year to invest in public goods like transit, infrastructure, education, and more should create good jobs, advance racial and gender equity, and tackle the climate crisis. Our public dollars are the key to shaping a fairer society and equitable economy.

Jobs to Move America has a bold vision and road-tested plan for harnessing the power of our public dollars to create hundreds of thousands of good, family-sustaining jobs for workers across the country. 

Our key policy is called the U.S. Employment Plan, or the USEP. The USEP is a customizable, federally-approved policy tool that builds good jobs and equity into the public purchasing process. Learn more about how the USEP works here.
