U.S. LOSES 533,000 JOBS IN NOVEMBER - UNEMPLOYMENT HITS 6.7%

IAJVS MOBILIZES TO CONFRONT UNEMPLOYMENT CRISIS!

International Association of Jewish Vocational Services (IAJVS)

 

THE IAJVS RAPID RESPONSE TO RISING UNEMPLOYMENT:

   

At the organization's annual conference in Phoenix Arizona during the first week of November, the CEOs of IAJVS affiliated agencies voted to dispense with the planned agenda, turned the meeting into a strategic planning session and developed a national strategy to help confront the evolving unemployment crisis. IAJVS Executive Director Genie Cohen stated, "IAJVS historically has been one of the major "first responders" to address rising unemployment." 

 

In recent months, the current economic crisis in the United States has resulted in the collapse of major insurance companies, the effective end of major US investment banks, sustained significant losses by the country's financial markets and the possible bankrupting of the US automotive industry. Resulting from the new economic reality is the threat of massive unemployment not witnessed in this country since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

 

This week IAJVS issued the white paper   "Without Work"  to emphasize the problems associated with the escalating massive increase in U.S. unemployment and to publicize the commitment of the organization to developing and implementing programs and services that will get people back into the workforce. The full paper may be downloaded from the IAJVS website at  www.iajvs.org   
 

Since the meeting in Phoenix,  IAJVS workgroups have held national conference calls focused on further mobilizing its own national system and developing mechanisms to communicate with decision makers in every sector about the urgent need for strategies and resources to address this problem.In addition, the workgroups commissioned the creation of this e-newsletter to advise the public of IAJVS programs and services on a regular basis.
