    OpenCongress Bill Summary

    • This bill is designed to ensure full employment (4% unemployment rate) after 10 years. It sets a series of unemployment targets that, if not met, would trigger the disbursement of funds from a "National Full Employment Trust Fund," which would be made up of revenue from a new financial transactions tax on financial corporations. The funds would be used for a direct jobs program that would immediately place unemployed people in public, non-profit and small business jobs in areas hardest hit by unemployment.
