Campaign to Invest in America's Workforce.
The Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce is a diverse coalition of over 35 national organizations convened by National Skills Coalition and Jobs for the Future in response to the ongoing threat to funding for workforce training and education programs that are critical to filling the skills gap and putting Americans back to work. CIAW calls on Congress and the Administration to commit to investing, more broadly and more effectively, in the skills of America’s workforce—through our nation’s workforce development, youth, adult education, career and technical education, and industry-targeted higher education programs—so that more people can develop market-ready skills to meet the needs of U.S. industries and the larger U.S. economy.
We recognize the challenges that national policymakers face in managing the federal budget and stretching limited resources. Nevertheless, we challenge these policymakers to win the global skills race by investing comprehensively in the nation’s workforce in order to:
- Strengthen Our Ability to Compete in the Global Economy
- Help U.S. Businesses Grow and Create Jobs
- Support and Leverage Community Resources
- Help Everyone Contribute to and Share in our National Prosperity
