America is stronger when everyone who wants to work can find a job. Millions of Americans face chronic unemployment and struggle to find employment even when the economy is strong. Our policy efforts work to ensure that the public workforce development system provides everyone who wants to work, regardless of the barriers they face, the opportunity to do so and that federal, state, and national initiatives to get Americans back to work do not leave out people who face chronic unemployment.
