Tell Congress: Build a 21st century workforce - support the American Workforce Empowerment Act!


There are currently 31,000 unfilled jobs in the U.S. marine industry alone – good-paying, skilled jobs that would support American families and our booming recreational boating industry. The industry stands ready to hire a new generation of workers but needs the support of policymakers to ensure adequate talent exists.
Fortunately, Representatives Jim Hagedorn (R-MN-1), Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ-2), Paul Mitchell (R-MI-10), and Ron Estes (R-KS-4) have introduced the bipartisan American Workforce Empowerment Act – legislation that will help businesses fill open positions by increasing access to vocational training and apprenticeship programs.
A strong 21st century workforce is key to the recreational boating industry’s success and the U.S. economy. Congress must act now to empower students and workers and address this skilled worker shortage.
