CLASP works to improve employment opportunities for people with low incomes in two ways. First, we advocate for federal, state, and local policies to improve access to education and training that lead to better-paying jobs. We promote quality create pathways that create bridges between adult basic education, workforce skills training, and postsecondary education. This includes leveraging education and training opportunities in public benefits programs. Second, we seek to improve job quality for low-income workers. That includes increasing wages and providing access to paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, and stable work schedules. This enables low-income people to balance their work, school, and family obligations—promoting economic stability as well as career advancement.
