Coalition Letter Supporting the American Workforce Act

I’m writing on behalf of the Opportunity America Jobs and Careers Coalition to express our support for Sen. Tom Cotton’s American Workforce Act (AWA), a thoughtful, innovative approach to workforce development that has the potential to provide more effective training for American workers and badly needed talent for employers, enhancing opportunity and boosting economic competitiveness. The Opportunity America Jobs and Careers Coalition is a Washington-based business group focused on job training and workforce development. Members include employers and employer associations from a broad range of industries experiencing skills mismatches and worker shortages – construction, manufacturing, retail, hospitality and IT, among others.
