Considering the economic climate and in the wake of the recently-passed deficit-reduction bill, members of Congress seek strategies that will reduce the deficit, yet allow the U.S. to address its growing list of national priorities.
Certainly reducing unemployment and job creation remain a top priority, yet the workforce system has been consistently underfunded for several years while the Workforce Investment Act has been expired since 2003.
Workforce stakeholders are standing up for investments in America's workers through a National Workforce Week of Action (Aug. 15-19).
Goodwill is proud to co-sponsor this effort and urges staff working at local Goodwill's to reach out to their members of Congress to advocate for adequate funding for the workforce system and to urge swift reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act.
Please use Goodwill's Legislative Action Center to urge your members of Congress to invest in America's workers.
