Job quality is essential to realizing the ideals of the “American Dream”. Low quality jobs limit the purchasing power of a large segment of consumers, reducing the strength of the economy. In contrast, good quality jobs invest in human capability, boost productivity, and provide workers with the resources to express their wants in the market in the form of consumer demand. Quality work affords an individual the opportunity to save, to build the security and confidence that allows one to plan for the future and see oneself as a valued member of a community.
