DREAMers make our nation and economy strong
43,500 DACA recipients are essential workers in critical health care and social assistance professions — many on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
85% of Americans believe that NOW is the time to give DREAMers the opportunity to stay in this country.
Polls are consistent in finding that approximately 4 out of 5 Americans, including a strong majority of Democrats and Republicans, support DREAMers and DACA.
3 Steps Employers can take to make this DREAM come true
- Hire and retain DACA-mented DREAMers with work authorization who are ready – and legally able – to work and bring the skills we need to revitalize our economy and succeed.
- Share the success you have had with DREAMers in your workforce with your peers and network via LinkedIn and other social media platforms, e-newsletters, and direct outreach.
- Encourage other businesses to hire and retain DREAMers to help build a more equitable and prosperous company.
