Labor Department Announces “Good Jobs” Initiative

Hopes to provide workers better understanding of their rights.

Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh announced last week the “Good Jobs” initiative. The initiative will provide information to workers, employers, and government entities to help improve job quality and access. The Labor Department hopes that by providing these resources, workers will be more able to effectively unionize and partner with employers to collaboratively create workplaces where all can flourish.

“Working people across the country want better opportunities, and demand more from their work. Many businesses understand these new expectations and are seeking the right tools to meet the moment,” said Secretary Walsh. “During this historic economic recovery, we can work together to provide opportunities in every community in our nation.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Walsh as he heads the Labor Department.
  • For labor officials as the implement the Good Jobs initiative.
  • For the president and his administration as measures are taken to boost the economy and the employment market.
