Transitional Jobs: Background, Program Models, and Evaluation Evidence

The budget for the U.S. Department of Labor for Fiscal Year 2010 includes a total of $45 million to support and study transitional jobs. This paper describes the origins of the transitional jobs models that are operating today, reviews the evidence on the effectiveness of this approach and other subsidized employment models, and offers some suggestions regarding the next steps for program design and research. The paper was produced for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services by MDRC as part of the Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ project, which includes two random assignment evaluations of transitional jobs programs. Transitional jobs programs provide temporary, wage-paying jobs, support services, and job placement help to individuals who have difficulty getting and holding jobs in the regular labor market. Although recent evaluation results have raised doubts about whether TJ programs, as currently designed, are an effective way to improve participants’ long-term employment prospects, the studies have also confirmed that TJ programs can be operated at scale, can create useful work opportunities for very disadvantaged people, and can lead to critical indirect impacts such as reducing recidivism among former prisoners. Thus, in drawing lessons from the recent results, the paper argues that it may be important to think more broadly about the goals of TJ programs while simultaneously testing new strategies that may produce better long-term employment outcomes.

Enterprising States: Creating Jobs, Economic Development and Prosperity in Challenging Times

The National Chamber Foundation has partnered with the American Free Enterprise. Dream Big. campaign to spur the creation of 20 million jobs in the next decade – restoring the 7 million jobs lost to the current recession, and creating the 13 million new jobs that our growing nation will need in the next 10 years. Each individual state will play a pivotal role in achieving this goal by creating the conditions for competition, innovation, and productivity through a focus on education and training, science and technology and infrastructure. Enterprise-friendly policies at the state level can facilitate local job growth by championing entrepreneurship and mobilizing effective partnerships for improving the conditions for business and job growth. Our study connects the success of free enterprise to our nation’s economy by correlating key policy inputs and best practices in state-driven economic development with job creation and other substantive economic outputs. Brief case studies of each state highlight policies and strategies that work. From the interviews we conducted for these case studies, it is clear that the states are making job creation a high priority, and are implementing meaningful changes in their approaches to job creation. While this varies by state, there is a renewed focus on creating more favorable conditions for business growth.
