Coalition Letter to House Leadership Supporting WIOA Reauthorization

I’m writing on behalf of the Opportunity America Jobs and Careers Coalition to express our support for Congress’s efforts to advance reauthorization of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). We’re encouraged to see the legislation come to the floor and find things to admire in both Democratic and Republican versions – the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2022 (H.R. 7309) and the Republican substitute amendment. We hope that when a law is finally passed, it will be bipartisan and borrow from both proposals.

The Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO or Partnership) and the 93 undersigned organizations urge the Department of Labor’s (DOL or Department) Wage and Hour Division to abandon or at least postpone issuance of its announced proposed rulemaking altering the overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Due to significant concerns with supply chain disruptions, workforce shortages, inflationary pressures, and the shifting dynamics of the American workforce following the COVID-19 pandemic, any rule change now would be ill-advised.
