Chair Owens to Hold Hearing on Workforce Development Programs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, May 11, at 10:15 a.m., the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development, chaired by Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04), will hold a hearing titled “Examining America’s Workforce Challenges: Looking for Ways to Improve Skills Development.”

“Every member of Congress is hearing that employers are struggling to find skilled workers. A skills-based economy is on the horizon, but for America to compete on that global stage, the nation must improve its workforce development system,” said Chair Owens. “Skills-based education is not partisan—laws like the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act help equip Americans with the tools needed to have meaningful careers, but reforms are needed. Preparing for tomorrow’s workforce starts today. We can build a stronger workforce system by listening to the needs of job creators, delivering upskilling opportunities to workers, and holding skills education programs accountable for their performance.”
