NASDCTEc is excited to announce the launch of the Campaign to Invest in Americaâ€™s Workforce (CIAW), a national effort calling for greater and more effective federal investments in our nationâ€™s skills so more U.S. businesses can find the skilled workers they need to compete globally, and so all U.S. workers can share in and contribute to our countryâ€™s economic prosperity.
Comprised of over 35 national organizations, the Campaign calls on Congress and the Administration to commit to investingâ€”more broadly and more effectivelyâ€”in the skills of Americaâ€™s workforce so that more people can develop the market-ready skills to meet the needs of U.S. industries and the larger U.S. economy.
Co-convened by National Skills Coalition and Jobs for The Future, the Campaign to Invest in Americaâ€™s Workforce was developed in response to the ongoing threat to the existence of workforce training and education programs that are critical to putting Americans back to work. Together we challenge policymakers to win the global skills race by investing comprehensively across targeted programs in order to strengthen our nationâ€™s ability to compete in the global economy, help U.S. businesses grow and create jobs, support and leverage community resources, and help everyone to contribute to and share in our national prosperity.
NASDCTEc is proud to be a member of the Campaign to Invest in Americaâ€™s Workforce and we hope that you will join our call for greater and more effective federal investments in our nationâ€™s workforce.
