Pledge to America’s Workers – Celebrating One YearOn November 6, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Ivanka Trump: Today, we are celebrating the one year anniversary of the White House’s Pledge to America’s Workers. A call to action for business and industry to create more and better jobs for Americans by providing education and training opportunities for students and workers. People are coming off the sidelines and securing opportunities to provide for themselves and their families. Virtually every demographic is achieving historically low unemployment rates. The president’s call to action has led to a full blown national movement. Over the last year, more than 300 businesses and organizations, large and small, have signed our Pledge to America’s Workers. And today, we celebrate reaching over 12 million pledges. Every single pledge is a commitment to the promise of an individual and his or her potential. We are changing the conversation on workforce development so we can prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow. The real impact and stories of transforming lives is when companies, states, governments invest in their greatest asset: the American worker.
