The newest revision of HR 1000 by Dr. Philip Harvey is attached. Please check it out. NJFAN has agreed to take the next few weeks to show the newest draft of the Jobs Guarantee-Full Employment Bill to key leaders and organizations for feedback and input. This crucial legislation was first introduced by the late Rep. John Conyers in 2012 in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
