Build ladders and raise the floor

June 9, 2014


Remarks presented by PHI Strategic Advisor Steven Dawson at the annual meeting of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions in 2014. The remarks highlight the importance of both building ladders (i.e. creating career opportunities) and raising the floor (i.e. creating better-quality jobs) for low-wage workers. Dawson discusses the history of Cooperative Home Care Associates, a worker-owned home care agency in the Bronx that he co-founded, to illustrate his point.
