Wage Subsidies Create Jobs
The Work First Wage Subsidy Program in New York City boasts an 83% retention rate. Clients are hired by partner employers and Work First pays up to 75% of their monthly wages. This payment structure creates new jobs as it encourages employers to hire multiple employees where they would have traditionally hired just one. Employers train clients in job-specific skills, investing in new employees and increasing the likelihood of retention. Thanks to the Wage Subsidy Program, clients have been hired and trained at companies in a variety of industries and given the opportunity for upward mobility.
