Welcome to Massachusetts Workforce Alliance
The Massachusetts Workforce Alliance (MWA) creates true economic opportunity for low-income people by uniting individuals, organizations and coalitions to advance sensible workforce development policy.
MWA orginally came together as a response to the shift in government policy and public dialogue away from serving the poor, at the same time that there were dramatic changes in the economy and labor market. As a result, significant numbers of Massachusetts residents do not have a realistic opportunity of obtaining decent jobs with family sustaining wages.
MWA works to change this by clarifying what is happening in workforce development, demonstrating how current policies adversely affect many communities and employers, and working with low income communities towards long term solutions.
