Focus on the Economy, Creating Jobs

Well, this week, the Presidential races changed quite a bit for both Democrats and Republicans, as the field narrowed down to two candidates per party.

Now, it’s easier to focus on what each of the candidates are saying. For those of who are in the job creation business, now is the time to see what each of them have to say about how the U.S. economy can be improved and how we keep creating good jobs for our citizens.

Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit excels creating opportunities within our own organization for good jobs or with our partners in the corporate community. Some of those corporate business relationships span many years.

For example, our partnership with DTE has been successful for more than 60 years and with Ford for more than 80 years.

A relationship you might not expect is ours with Downtown Detroit Partnership and the Clean Downtown partnership where Goodwill had and has more than100 employees and trainees working to keep Downtown Detroit clean and ready visitors at all times. The next time you are Downtown look for the Clean Downtown folks and know that many of them are getting a great chance to work through Goodwill - earning a first paycheck, getting a bank account for the first time and for many of them, reconnecting with their families.

That is what the power of work does for a person and that is what Goodwill is all about.
