Jobs

Help fight for jobs in our neighborhoods! Minority communities have higher unemployment rates than the overall population, and the goal of this campaign is to change that. We need jobs that pay good wages and benefits, so that we can support our families and better our communities.

With all of the tax dollars thrown at developers for new construction in our cities in Texas, we think taxpayers should get a return on that investment.

That’s why TOP, along with churches, trade unions, and other community organizations, is pushing for community benefits agreements with developers and government agencies that will guarantee good jobs, local hiring and training opportunities in our communities.

Also, with the expansion of the Port of Houston, and as more jobs are brought into the area, residents need to have access to these new jobs, as well as job training that will allow them to succeed.
