NAM Announces Support for JOBS for Success Act

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement backing the Jobs and Opportunity with Benefits and Services (JOBS) for Success Act of 2018:

“The JOBS for Success Act creates new opportunities for people left behind to join the 21st-century manufacturing workforce,” said Timmons. “This legislation will help us upskill more Americans for the new-collar jobs of the future, provide the dignity of work along with the necessary wraparound social services to support people at work and enhance the talents of those who are unemployed or underemployed by allowing them to find meaningful career paths in a rapidly changing and evolving economy.”

“Manufacturers in America have a lot to be confident about, thanks to recent tax and regulatory reforms that have spurred record levels of optimism. But with 391,000 openings today for skilled workers and 3.5 million positions to fill by 2025, workforce solutions, such as the JOBS for Success Act, are a must for our country to remain competitive and stand out as exceptional in the global economy.”
