Action Alert from NSC

The National Skills Coalition has asked for support; please review the request and consider signing on!

 

“Investments in workforce are absolutely necessary in future stimulus packages. Unemployment filing is at an all-time high and could easily reach 20 percent, higher than even Great Depression era numbers. As we look to future packages that respond to our current crisis and its recovery, workers and businesses desperately need Congress to include vital investments in skills workers need to fill in-demand jobs today and to return to the workforce once our economy reopens.

On May 1st, members of the House of Representatives introduced Relaunching America’s Workforce Act (RAWA), which calls for significant investment in workforce and skills in future stimulus packages. RAWA is a critical step, but inclusion of this funding in any future stimulus package isn’t guaranteed.

That’s why NSC is asking your organization to sign on, Rebecca, and urge Congress to immediately invest $15.6 billion in our nation’s workforce development system, consistent with investments proposed in RAWA. Join us to show a critical mass of stakeholder support by signing the letter by Friday, May 8th and show Congress that investing in workforce and training workers for in-demand skills is critical to economic recovery from this crisis. If your organization is not able to sign on at this time, we encourage you to sign on as an individual by unchecking the organizational support box on the petition. Reach out to National Network Manager Jessica Cardott with any questions.”
