The members of the USA Workforce Coalition need your support if we’re going to create a more resilient American workforce and a stronger economy.
You can join this growing national coalition by visiting our “Take Action” page and sharing your support with President Trump and key members of Congress. You can also contact your local Member of Congress and ask them to give American workers more opportunity to realize the benefits of our growing economy by lending their support to the USA Workforce Tax Credit Act.
