Low-income workers struggle to stay employed and advance in their careers. Lack of basic skills, employer instability, and other barriers can lead to chronic unemployment or trap them in low-wage work. That’s why CLASP advocates for federal, state, and local policies that expand access to transitional jobs, which provide time-limited subsidies to businesses that hire workers with employment barriers. This enables employers to pay workers so they can learn on the job and develop marketable skills leading to higher-wage work.
