We know that one of the biggest factors that move Ohioans up and out of poverty is a job, but a job doesn’t always mean a living. Ohio’s public policies have the potential to create good jobs, increase opportunity for all Ohioans, and make Ohio’s economy stronger.
Speakers discussed how state policy decisions and budget proposals can potentially influence Ohio’s employment and direct care workforce. They covered programs in place to support working Ohioans – including person-centered work programs, the direct care workforce, and work supports – and how you can advocate for working Ohioans in the Senate.
