In recognition of International Day of the Youth, Janelle Jones, chief economist at the department of labor recorded this video in support of a new deal for youth.
Janelle is the first Black woman to serve as the Chief Labor Economist for the Department of Labor, leading the departments research and initiatives. As Janelle says, we don’t want to see another economic recovery until everyone truly recovers. We have to invest in preparing youth for tomorrow’s economy and work to dismantle the obstacles to economic stability and security that much harder to overcome.
Thank you, Janelle for your support of the changemakers and we look forward to working with you to realize our demands for a more just world.
