For being the wealthiest nation on earth, far too many Americans are struggling with the realities of everyday life—paying the bills, caring for a family, putting food on the table, and keeping a roof over their head.
The future of our economy rests in our ability to alleviate this struggle by innovating and creating new, livable-wage jobs where they are needed most.
We need to encourage and expand STEM education and create a pipeline into the workforce through apprenticeships. We need to make it easier for Americans to get the skills necessary to compete in our shifting economy and to provide the income support services
necessary to succeed.
