Investing in the Future of America

Build Our Way Out is an industry-driven, workforce training initiative for building America’s next generation of skilled trades, manufacturing, professional and technical workforce.

We support the Investing in American Worker’s Act (S.1422) being included in reconciliation and focusing the workforce training tax credit on *new* employees and those making $30,000/year or less ($15/hour).

JOIN US. WHAT YOU CAN DO.

Contact your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator  and urge them to support the Investing in American Worker’s Act (S.1422) and its inclusion in the “reconciliation” package with the crucial workforce training tax credit.

Targeting workforce training for new job creation addresses those who need to get into the labor force, where unemployment is the key economic issue and impediment to overall economic mobility and prosperity.

We also believe the tax credit should include high schools to the qualified applicant pool.  This change  creates new jobs over the existing bill’s focus, limited to the currently employed, which ultimately excludes new employees, and new job creation.

We believe this tax credit will:

• Create opportunities for minority, rural, native America, veterans and disadvantaged workers

• Create opportunity within communities who are most often being left behind economically

• Create a greater net effect to move small and medium sized business to action

Ultimately, the initiative diversifies America’s workforce, rebuilds the nation’s infrastructure, returns manufacturing to the U.S., and spurs the next generation of urban and rural middle-class workers.

It is critical that our workforce systems not only better-align with industry demand, but fundamentally change the relationship between the two.

Waiting is Not an Option

The Build Our Way Out coalition is organizing national, state, and local workforce, industry, and private trade union leaders from all 50 states as well as identifying and developing 20 “shovel-ready” sites to advocate for and demonstrate the effectiveness of this bi-partisan, legislative Initiative.

The need is urgent.

Companies need skilled workers, and it is increasingly difficult to identify and hire trained and skilled workers in their regions – specifically around long-term projects.

Unions/skilled trades want to secure employment opportunities for their members and increase membership – especially within communities of color.

Existing investment and development zones and sites are beyond shovel ready – but they need the talent pipelines and the economic incentives/support, today.
