Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!


Baltimore's unemployment rate has consistently topped the state's and remains one of the highest in the nation. City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young is supporting two programs that aim to put Baltimoreans back to work as part of his "Jobs, jobs, jobs" motto. Learn what the following programs are all about:

Local Hire Law - The Council President's historic Local Hire law requires that 51 percent of new jobs created as a result of a contract awarded over $300,000 and public subsidies approved of $5 million or more be filled by Baltimore City residents. The bill was approved by the City Council on June 3, 2013 and became law on December 23, 2013. It has the sole intent to put Baltimoreans to work by directly re-investing public funds used to support contracts and subsidies back into the community through jobs.

Employ Baltimore- Employ Baltimore is authorized by an Executive Order issued by the Mayor. The purpose of Employ Baltimore is to expand employment opportunities for Baltimore city residents by encouraging businesses that are awarded municipal contracts to utilize the city's local workforce delivery system to recruit qualified city residents to fill their open jobs. It is designed to maximize the impact of public spending by increasing the labor market participation of Baltimore citizens and stimulating the local economy.

To learn more about job openings, including those as a result of contracts and projects approved by the City government, go to www.oedworks.com and click on the "Job Seeker Services" link and check out the Hot Jobs listing.
