Senator Reed proposes measure to help adults in workforce receive necessary training
Earlier this month, Democrats in the U.S. Senate announced the Manufacturing Jobs for America initiative. Twentyone senators were present for the launch, many contributing their own unique piece of legislation to the endeavor.
Senator Jack Reed (D-RI -- on the mic) proposed the Adult Education and Economic Growth Act. The purpose of which is to "reform and increase investment in job training and adult education and help connect adult learners with opportunities for jobs."
Reed's bill, if passed, would provide a tax credit to companies that invest in the education of its employees, increase funding for adult education, and expand adult ed accessibility via technology.
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) supports the Manufacturing Jobs for America initiative as a whole. That said, We’re hoping to see the Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act (S. 1114) passed in order to get tough on currency manipulation.
