Jobs to Move America (JMA) has a plan to build better, cleaner public transit systems, to create and retain good manufacturing jobs, and to generate opportunities for unemployed Americans like veterans, single parents, and residents of low-income neighborhoods.
JMA is a national project dedicated to ensuring that the billions of public dollars spent on public transit systems create better results for our communities: good jobs, cleaner equipment and more opportunity for low income people.
American cities spend about $5.4 billion each year to buy buses and rail cars for public transportation systems. Much of this money goes to global companies who manufacture significant portions of our buses and trains overseas, bypassing millions of unemployed Americans and struggling communities.
Air pollution from old, dirty buses and trains also disrupts our climate and harms public health. We need to replace these old vehicles with clean and efficient buses, trains and streetcars.
JMA's policy tool called the "U.S. Employment Plan" encourages bus and rail manufacturing companies to create good American jobs when they receive multimillion-dollar contracts paid for with taxpayer funds.
