Caryn York joined WYPR’s Sheilah Kast to discuss “The Great Reopening”

On Wednesday, May 20th, Caryn York, CEO of JOTF, joined host Sheilah Kast on WYPR’s “On the Record” to talk about challenges the low-wage workforce is facing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The digital divide has prevented individuals from teleworking and applying for benefits, while limited access to paid leave has forced many to choose between losing income and going to work while exhibiting symptoms. Caryn also discussed how JOTF remains committed to providing comprehensive, customized case management services for Project JumpStart participants and graduates.
