The official unemployment rate has fallen to 8.5%, its
lowest level in nearly three years, and we are told the economy continues to
recover. Nonetheless there are still millions of people who are jobless or
working part time when they want and need full-time hours. Addressing the
crisis of unemployment and under-employment must continue to be the nation’s priority. But
many members of Congress have never seriously addressed the problem of
joblessness and too many of our policymakers continue to focus on deficit
reduction and tax cuts skewed to benefit the wealthy while ignoring the plight
of the unemployed and the underemployed.
The interfaith community has responded to the economic
crisis by creating an organization to work for job creation and support the
unemployed. Faith Advocates for Jobs
is an interfaith organization with three goals:
- organize a large network of congregations to support
the unemployed and their families,
- advocate for public policy initiatives to
address the crisis, and
- develop educational programs in support of job
creation and retention and a restored economy.
