A highly skilled workforce is essential to a well-functioning economy. Skilled workers raise productivity, grow the American economy, and help maintain our global competitiveness. Skills training can also be a driver of economic mobility, helping workers increase their own wages and productivity. Both the public and private sectors can play a key role in helping raise the skills of America’s workforce, by developing and expanding access to high-quality training programs, such as apprenticeships, that lead to high-wage jobs.
Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund and AT&T for a discussion on the importance of worker training as an engine for growth, and a pathway into the middle class for workers.
