Google’s Fight Against Unemployment

Google.org promised $50 million to fund non-profit organizations that are focused on using technology to improve job searching and helping people prepare for jobs of the future


We have already seen that there has been a massive change in the job market and this will continue.
“We also recognize that the way we work is changing, and we want to make sure that as many people as possible can make the most of the new jobs, industries and opportunities that are emerging—some of which we couldn’t have imagined just a few years ago,” Google.org President Jacqueline Fuller wrote in a blog post.
Many research organizations, non-profits and businesses have already begun investing in this sector, “whether through the rise of the gig economy, new technological advances, or demographic changes.”

Still, google.org is going to invest another $2 million to fund more research on the future of work and then share the results over the next couple of years.

Google.org joining forces with the nation’s domestic workers is precisely the type of innovative collaboration to break through the greatest social dilemmas we face today.”

Google.org has already funded four nonprofits: Bayes Impact, Social Finance, National Domestic Workers Alliance and Code for America. The plan is to soon expand the funding into other regions.
