A New Definition of Good Jobs

Details

“Good jobs are essential for good lives,” said Osterman. “Our great challenge is not simply creating jobs but assuring that they are good and, by the same token, upgrading the quality of existing work. We have the tools to achieve these goals but need to come together and build the will to move forward.”

A group called the Good Jobs Champions Group, brought together by the Families and Workers Fund and the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program, released the new good jobs definition on October 4, 2022 as part of a “Statement on Good Jobs.”
