Advancing to a Middle-Skill Job: Moving Beyond the First Step on a Career Pathway

Although unemployment is at a record low, the many Americans struggling to make ends meet is a sign that job creation alone is not the solution to poverty. Now, the issue is creating sustainable, livable wage jobs that foster career and wage growth. On October 11, the Urban Institute will discuss the challenges and potential policy interventions to help move the conversation away from just getting low-income and low-skill workers into jobs and instead focus on developing career pathways into middle-skill jobs that can support families and break cyclical poverty.
