EEOC Examines Current State of U.S. Workforce and Future Demand for Jobs

On April 5, 2017, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) held a public meeting at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., where experts examined the current state of the workforce in the United States and what jobs may be in future demand, according to a press release from the EEOC.

“A thorough understanding of today’s workforce, the employment opportunities available, the challenges in the job market – all are critical to our work in the EEOC,” Acting EEOC Chair Victoria A. Lipnic stated in the press release. President Donald Trump appointed Lipnic Acting Chair of the EEOC in January 2017.

Experts told the EEOC – the agency enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination – that upgrading the skills of the U.S. workforce and creating employment opportunities for all workers was key to strengthening the nation’s job market. All of them discussed the benefits of apprenticeship programs as a driver of skills training. FULL ARTICLE
