Let’s get Americans back to work
The Workforce Investment Act of 2012 is driven by three core principles:
- streamlining and coordinating existing training programs,
- strengthening accountability and
- promoting innovation.
The bill would cut red tape, establish competitive grant programs, expand the role of community colleges, involve more businesses and partnerships, and increase the use of on-the-job training, transitional jobs, and paid work experience so that individuals can enter or re-enter the labor market more quickly.
For over 13 years, the Workforce Investment Act has provided critical support for our workers, our businesses, and our communities. As our economy slowly recovers, it’s time to update and strengthen the law to ensure that businesses can find skilled Americans to hire, unemployed Americans have access to training and education programs, and local and regional partnerships have the necessary support to allow our country to continue to compete on the global stage.
Sign the petition to stand with us today in support of a more competitive American workforce.
