In response to continuing high rates of unemployment and a weak economy, President Obama announced his American Jobs Act on September 8, 2011. As stated by the President, the proposal aims to “put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working.” This book describes provisions of the American Jobs Act which fall into three major categories: promote hiring and prevent layoffs among teachers, law enforcement officers, firefighters, veterans, and the long-term unemployed; assist unemployed workers through unemployment compensation and reemployment services; and expanding workforce opportunities for low-income adults and youth.
