Let’s Get Back to Work, Rhode Island

COVID-19 has resulted in devastating job losses for thousands of Rhode Islanders and exacerbated the challenges faced by the state’s most vulnerable residents and their families. Many of the jobs lost paid less than $20 per hour, and most didn’t require a college credential. As we think about Rhode Island’s economic comeback, we’re making sure that no one gets left behind.

That’s why I launched Back to Work Rhode Island. It’s a first-of-its-kind workforce development initiative designed to get more than 5,000 Rhode Islanders into good-paying jobs. This program moves away from the old way of doing business – what I like to call the “train and pray” model – and focuses on a new approach: “train, support and hire.” This reimagined paradigm ensures those who have been traditionally underserved and are currently collecting unemployment receive the wraparound supports they need to get back to work.

I want to be clear: getting Rhode Islanders back to work isn’t a goal, it’s a promise. So, if you or a loved one are out of work, please visit the Back to Work website and learn more about the opportunities available to you. I also encourage you to stay up-to-date on news from my office by signing up to receive COVID-19 updates here and by joining the Back to Work RI group on Jobcase.

Together, we’ll get through this – and we’ll come out stronger and more resilient on the other side.

Gina M. Raimondo

Governor
