Comments In Response to the Proposed Workforce Investment Act reauthorization
MetadataShow full item record
This letter offers comments to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee on the draft of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) reauthorization bill. Thirteen years since passage of WIA, it is clear that the workforce investment system is woefully in need of important fixes to ensure that it meets the needs of all American workers and the needs of a rapidly changing economy. NCLR is pleased to see many of its recommendations for improvements incorporated into the draft but nonetheless recommends some important changes to ensure that WIA can, as it was originally intended, bolster economic and labor market success for all workers.
