Improve and Expand the Community Jobs Program

San Francisco Living Wage Coalition is working on local legislation that will serve as a model for counties across the country to transform workfare into a genuine job-training program that would provide a path to living wage jobs. This legislation for the Community Jobs Program would provide paid on-the-job training in non-profit community service.

This legislation would, through innovative civil service procedures in agreement with appropriate unions, fast track participants into available entry-level city jobs. These entry-level positions, with further training, would be a step in a career ladder to living wage civil service positions.

An advisory committee reporting to the Board of Supervisors would oversee the program to ensure union oversight, collaboration between City departments and a voice for community members and affected participants.
