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.
