Tell Us Your Story: Impact of Cuts to Federal Workforce Funds

Over the past three years, federal funding for employment and job training programs has been cut by more than $1 billion. Under sequestration – across-the-board spending cuts – federal workforce funding faces further cuts, putting programs that help job seekers and those looking to advance their careers in jeopardy. Unless Congress is able to find a more balanced approach to deficit reduction, employment and job training programs will continue to face more cuts over the next decade.

It is critical that the workforce development community speaks up and educates policymakers, the media, and the public on how cuts to these programs will result in job seekers finding less assistance to career counseling, people trying to advance their careers unable to get the credentials they need, and employers unable to find workers with the skills for the jobs they need to fill.

Please tell us your story about how funding cuts over the past three years have impacted your employment and job training programs and how cuts from sequestration will further impact the services your organization provides. National Skills Coalition will use this information to educate policymakers, the media, and the public on how these cuts hurt those that need help finding a job, better their lives, or expand their business with skilled workers.
