Build "Third Sector" Infrastructure, Too!

Opinion: Adding to the Nonprofit Work Force Is a Smart Way to Stimulate the Economy -

"...[L]et’s urge Congress and the White House to make charitable employment a key component of the economic-stimulus plan..."

"Spending government money on jobs at nonprofit causes would accomplish several goals. The government would be financing jobs that paid workers a decent living, money they could use to invest in goods and services in their hometowns. It also would help nonprofit groups deal with the short-term increase in demand for services and a shortfall of private and government money available to hire new workers to meet those demands."

"And perhaps most important, it would give nonprofit groups an opportunity to train a cadre of workers who can sustain charitable institutions over the long haul as demographic changes make it harder to attract workers."
