Oakland Local Hire Policy
HIRE OAKLAND RESIDENTS ON CITY FUNDED PROJECTS
We, the undersigned, request that the City Council and Mayor immediately adopt a policy requiring the employment of 50% Oakland residents in all job categories on all projects which receive city funding, including permanent and temporary professional, construction, and other jobs. We request that this be made an urgency resolution and be adopted by mid-October 2010. Oakland’s level of unemployment is unacceptable, unnecessary, and urgent. Having Oaklanders hold a majority of city-funded jobs helps the individuals, the neighborhoods, and Oakland revenues. Companies which use our tax dollars should hire our residents.
