A Message from Chairman Bill Drayton
Welcome to Get America Working! With about 8 million Americans "officially" unemployed and many millions more who would seek jobs if they were more readily available, the time has come for a national debate about job creation and how we get to fuller employment.
Get America Working! is a non-profit national organization whose mission is to create millions of jobs through structural changes in the U.S. economy.
With more good jobs available, many of the country's most significant social ills will be greatly diminished. We will see less crime and violence, fewer disengaged young people, less drug use, and a healthier population overall. Furthermore, the country will experience sustained, substantial, and faster economic growth; the environment will benefit greatly; and a larger tax base, combined with lessened dependency and social dysfunction, will allow tax rates to fall.
