DC Launches The “One City One Hire” Initiative

One City One Hire is an innovative strategy that will encourage Washington metropolitan area employers to commit to hire at least one unemployed District resident. It is designed to serve as a catalyst to jump-start the Mayor’s pledge to put unemployed District residents — in every ward of the city — back to work.

The initiative is being launched with support from the D.C. Chamber of Commerce, and is modeled after Atlanta’s highly successful Hire One Atlanta jobs program which achieved nearly 13,000 new hires within six months of its launch. One City One Hire aims to get area employers to hire 10,000 unemployed District residents within the next year.
