JOBS NOW Coalition

Jobs Now Coalition is the oldest and largest jobs policy coalition of its kind in the nation. We rally together a diverse and politically influential coalition of member organizations—from community service organizations to unions to job training programs—to move Minnesota toward policies and programs which will expand the middle class, expand local tax bases, and promote broad prosperity by generating jobs that pay a family-supporting wage.

We compile solid research—including our groundbreaking Family Wage and Budget Calculator—to help government, businesses, nonprofits, and the public understand how jobs that support families historically have been generated and how we can generate these jobs now and into the future.

 

Calculate your Family Wage & Budget.
