Two former Dow Jones executives have launched a business that hires economically disadvantaged single mothers and provides them with child care coverage and career development training.
The organization’s founders call Boston-based Moms and Jobs, or MoJo, “a social venture in a for-profit vehicle.” The apparel manufacturer teaches the women how to make the clothes and pays them more than minimum wage.
Universities and sports teams have supported the firm’s mission by having MoJo manufacture logo apparel, which “MoJo moms” make by hand.
