Preparing Workers for the 21st Century Economy

I believe one of the best ways to lift people out of poverty and provide more opportunity is to connect them with a good-paying, family-sustaining job. When I was operating a small construction company for 25 years, I saw the skills gap firsthand. There were times when we couldn’t expand our business and create jobs because skilled workers were simply unavailable.

That’s why I introduced the USA Workforce Tax Credit Act  legislation establishing a new federal tax credit that will encourage charitable donations for community-based apprenticeship programs, career and technical education, workforce development, and education preparedness. I was glad to participate in a panel discussion recently (pictured above) that included Corporal Jeffrey Cleland (pictured right), a retired Marine and the current director of the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Institute. He shared with the group the importance of workforce development programs for veterans, and how they can help in the transition back to civilian life.

You can read more about this new legislation here. And if you have any input you’d like to share with me about how we can close the skills gap, feel free to email me here.
