Growing Jobs through Infrastructure Investment

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Workforce Development will hold a remote hearing titled: “Growing Jobs through Infrastructure Investment.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:00 P.M. on Thursday, May 6, 2021 via the Zoom platform (information to be provided).

The national infrastructure has long deteriorated but investing in it today creates millions of good paying jobs for American workers now and into the future. However, it is not enough to create jobs, the country needs a pipeline of skilled workers to fill them. This hearing will discuss how small firms and the federal government can leverage workforce development programs to train and upskill the next generation of infrastructure workers. Members will hear from experts, industry leaders, and educational institutions about efforts to provide workforce training and investing in the nation’s infrastructure, through proposals like the American Jobs Plan will impact those efforts.
