Our vision

Jobs-First.org is a bold new 501(c)(4) advocacy group whose goal is to build a "Jobs-First Movement" to create good paying American jobs and grow an economy that works for everyone. 

OUR MISSION

Our  mission is to promote the “Jobs-First Movement” as an aspirational economic message for the 2018 midterms (and beyond). In order to accomplish this mission, we are partnering with other organizations in order to co-author policy-focused op-eds, organize economic forums, and lobby candidates and elected officials to integrate this message into their campaign platforms.

Form a "Jobs Committee"

A standalone joint House/Senate Committee on Job Create, Economic Growth, & Global Competitiveness.  This committee would utilize experts to assemble best practices from around the world, create new policies, and act as a clearinghouse for all federal activities affecting jobs and the economy.

strategic economic objectives

One, five, and ten year Strategic Economic Objectives focused on increasing the US's ranking in the "Critical Pillars" of the World Economic Forum's, Global Competitiveness Report. Using these rankings allows policymakers to evaluate countries above the US, and determine which reforms should be enacted to surpass them.

THE ECONOMIC POLICY & innovation CENTER (EPIC)

Create a federally funded think tank/venture capital firm called the Economic Policy & Innovation Center (EPIC).  EPIC's charter would be to employ the leading experts to seek out new policy ideas, analyze the costs, develop implementation plans, and coordinate with the committee staff to draft legislation.  As a venture capital firm, EPIC would help US companies to identify technological gaps and fund high-tech startups in order to address those shortfalls.

TRANSFORMATIVE ECONOMIC REFORMS

All of these mechanisms are essential elements of US1st’s mission, but the ultimate goal of this organization will be to develop transformational new economic policies.  Most importantly, these reforms are designed to begin closing the gap between the US and our competitors, while eventually setting the stage for the US to maintain our status as the most competitive economic in the world.
