- Skills Mismatch
In today’s economy, we need to invest in our workforce more than ever. Businesses continue to struggle with job openings and workers don’t have access to training and education necessary to access good jobs.
Our nation’s workforce development and technical education systems are designed to address these challenges, helping workers develop the skills necessary to fill job openings today and the jobs of the 21st century. The U.S. has not lived up to its commitment to businesses or workers, however, by investing in these programs at necessary levels.
Congress should honor its commitment to workers and businesses, ensure U.S. can compete in a global economy, and rectify historic disinvestments by investing in America’s workforce.
