“We seek investments by the public and private sectors that create quality jobs for Detroiters, not just low-wage jobs that relegate more and more Detroiters to poverty or devote the best jobs to new residents.”
Detroit is suffering from unemployment rates worse than the Great Depression, coupled with a lack of job opportunities. There are abandoned and foreclosed homes at a level we have never seen before. Our educational system is in a crisis, leaving our children unprepared to compete for what jobs there are. The rising crime rate has made our neighborhoods unsafe and has caused a dramatic drop in population as people seek safer communities.
