Please join Ohio Representative Lisa Sobecki and Pennsylvania Representative Joe Ciresi, and a distinguished panel for a webinar on April 9 at 10am, entitled “The National Infrastructure Bank 'Moonshot': Hiring and Training a Workforce for 21st Century Jobs”.
The webinar will focus on the challenge of assimilating tens of millions of new employees into high-paying jobs in infrastructure projects.
Complementing the Biden jobs plan announced March 31, a new National Infrastructure Bank (NIB) will create 25 million new jobs and launch a training program not seen since the Great Depression and the WWII economic mobilization. The NIB will pay Davis-Bacon wages and collaborate with trade unions and other institutions to create a skilled workforce on a par with any other nation. That workforce will be able to immediately handle entry-level positions in construction and repair and be quickly upgraded to work on the most advanced projects including High-Speed Rail, transmission lines, broadband implementation, water desalination, and power projects. Let's shoot for the moon!
Please join this provocative and educational webinar.
