Equus Celebrates National Workforce Development Month

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, the Senate passed a bipartisan resolution introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), and Todd Young (R-Ind.) to encourage investment in education and training for American workers by designating September as “National Workforce Development Month.” Senate Resolution 690 recognizes the value of workforce development to our country and the value of laws like the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

In a press release on Senator Feinstein’s website, she said, “We must continue to invest in training and education to help American workers,” said Senator Feinstein. “This is particularly true as millions of workers are left without a job due to the coronavirus pandemic. As we continue to rebuild our economy, our resolution will support workforce development programs to help put more Americans back to work.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented effect on jobs and employment across the country. Now more than ever, it’s important to ensure that folks have access to and are qualified for good-paying jobs,” Senator Enzi said. “I’m pleased to join Senators Feinstein, Young, and Baldwin in emphasizing the crucial role that workforce development plays in our economic security and providing quality training and education to our workers.”
