The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
is a bipartisan effort that has one simple goal:

Connecting more Americans to good jobs.
And training for modern jobs is good FOR ALL.

BEFORE: You often had to travel to multiple locations around the state to find resources
NOW: Federal and state agencies collaborate under one roof
Communicating ­– sharing data – connecting the dots – and measuring success.

It’s quality INFRASTRUCTURE and INVESTMENT in America’s greatest asset: it’s people.
It’s a skills super highway
with on-ramps for youth, veterans, returning citizens, and people with barriers to employment.
And off-ramps for apprenticeship, community college courses, on-the-job training and more…
Along the way, Americans earn credentials showing they have the skills employers want on Day One.

There’s less congestion… and better services.

SECRETARY PEREZ: American Job Centers helped Deric go from gig to gig in fast food to an advanced career in BioTech–
SECRETARY KING: And Janet who was able to receive the skills she needed to reintegrate back from prison into society.

PEREZ: There are locations all across America.
KING: Find yours.
