WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Human Resources Subcommittee Chairman Vern Buchanan (R-FL) announced today that the Subcommittee will hold a hearing entitled “Getting Incentives Right: Connecting Low-Income Individuals with Jobs” on Tuesday, March 1st at 10:00 AM in room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building. At the hearing, members will explore opportunities to reform our welfare system to better meet the needs of job seekers and job creators, grow our economy, and move more American families forward. Members will specifically discuss the role employers play in helping low-income individuals compete and succeed in the workforce.
Upon announcing the hearing, Chairman Buchanan said:
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to discuss a perspective often overlooked when we talk about helping low-income individuals move up the economic ladder: that of employers. As a job creator myself, I know firsthand the positive impact a business can have on its employees and the community in which it operates. Our welfare system should partner with businesses not only to retain a strong workforce, but also help people find jobs, grow their careers, and escape poverty.”
