With a low unemployment rate in our state, one might think that Tennessee’s economy is working for everyone. And it’s certainly better than it has been for far more people in a very long time. Sadly, the unemployment rate masks the real challenges faced by many Tennesseans who have given up trying to find work, are perpetually underemployed, or whose background makes it impossible for them to find steady work. To that end, we still have much to do to truly address employability issues in our state.

For this reason, the Beacon Center has brought together employers, nonprofit leaders, and community advocates in our Employment Coalition, a group of people dedicated to finding employment solutions to the unemployed and underemployed in Tennessee.
