Good Jobs First

Good Jobs First frequently testifies before state legislatures, conducts workshops and training, and appears in the press. Unions, community organizations, religious groups, living wage campaigns, public officials,  environmentalists, tax and budget advocates, and economic development practitioners consult with GJF when companies seek development subsidies, restructure, close plants, or become involved in other issues of public concern. GJF tracks corporate accountability innovations in all states to develop "best practices" that can then be employed elsewhere.

George Meany Center for Labor Studies

The National Labor College (NLC) began with the vision of George Meany that labor have its own college - a national center that would provide continuous labor education for all union activists. At NLC you can take classes that enable you to be an integral part of building your union; those same union-building classes can start you on the path to finishing the bachelor’s degree.

Connecticut Department of Labor

Their offices, located in the 14 One-Stop Centers throughout the State, serve job seekers, students, businesses, and individuals who are underemployed, as well as those who want to change jobs or continue to move in their careers. At these facilities, assessment, testing, workshops and career guidance are available to everyone. Current labor market information enables individuals to plan for the jobs of tomorrow, as well as today. A job bank of available jobs in Connecticut and throughout the nation is literally "at your finger tips" through the use of the Internet. Using a PC, these can be viewed from your home, business, public library, and at any of the One-Stop Centers. (See the directory of CT Works Centers for the office nearest you.)
