This revised edition, produced in conjunction with the celebration of Cincinnati Works’ 20 years in operation, possesses updated statistics and procedures.

Why Don’t They Just Get a Job? describes the journey and the incredible results of Dave and Liane Phillips’ efforts to help those in poverty find their way to self sufficiency. Under the premise that existing job-readiness programs only focus on job placement and not retention, Dave and Liane Phillips created a poverty to economic self-sufficiency program with an 80 percent one-year employment retention rate. The not-for-profit offers a complete spectrum of free, lifetime employment services for the entry-level job-seeker to sustain and advance in today s work climate. The model is a winner of the 2009 Manhattan Institute Social Entrepreneur Award. Following its success, Dave Phillips is now volunteering as a consultant for similar programs in other cities.
