Representing hundreds of employers across the Commonwealth, Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education argues in a Boston Business Journal op-ed that education programs helping people into jobs and fields paying good wages should be a priority as the state prepares for economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

Proven programs like our Early College investments top the list.

“An essential focus must be on restoring financial stability to those who had it and on providing it to the far too many that never did. We can do this by getting people back to work in jobs and fields that pay family sustaining wages and offer opportunities for growth and upward economic mobility.”
