Mind the ‘Skills’ Gap: Apprenticeships and Training Programs

0 Tuesday, June 04, 2019 @ 11:30

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation and Workforce Development will meet for a hearing titled, “Mind the ‘Skills’ Gap: Apprenticeships and Training Programs.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:30 A.M. on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

As the digital economy continues to expand, small businesses must hire and retain high-skilled workers to compete and grow. However, the rapid shifts in the nature of work, limited access to training programs for workers in and those entering the workplace has produced more jobs than workers who are able to fill them. The hearing will discuss ways private industry and the government can partner to meet the workforce needs of small businesses today and for the future of work.
