Nearly half of the working people in the Reno-Sparks are employed in low-wage jobs, finds a new analysis by the Brookings Institute.

The “Every man for himself” philosophy doesn’t work. We must aggressively pursue programs that vigorously train workers for tomorrow’s jobs.

The choice is ours and ours alone.
