WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, co-chairs of the Middle Class Jobs Caucus, Bryan Steil (R-WI) and Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), held their first roundtable discussion titled Investing in America’s Workforce.
“I’ve heard from job creators in Southeast Wisconsin about the need to give our workers the resources and skills to fill open jobs. Preparing our workforce for the jobs of tomorrow is critical to support families and communities,” said Steil. “Today’s roundtable gave us an opportunity to discuss ways the federal government can give states more flexibility and provide targeted federal investment for workforce development programs. I’m working to find innovative, effective solutions to make sure workers have access to good paying jobs.”
The Middle Class Jobs Caucus is made up of 16 Members of Congress.
At the roundtable, Reps. Steil and Krishnamoorthi were joined by Ethan Pollack of the Aspen Institute, Kimberly Green of Advance CTE, and Cassi Zumbiel of the National Association of Manufacturers. Congressional staffers and industry advocates also attended and participated in a Q&A forum.
