On August 13, 2014 Congressman John Kline and other dignitaries visited Heavy Metal Truck Training school. Congressman Kline is Chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee and a key author of WIOA law. The Congressman was given a campus tour, had the opportunity to engage with students and instructors, observe driver trainees in action, and learned more about how critical WIOA is to helping unemployed and underemployed Minnesotans receive the assistance needed to enter quality truck driving institutions.
“Commercial truck driving is one of so many industries that need a more efficient, effective, and accountable workforce development system and I was pleased to help champion bipartisan legislation that empowers state and local job training leaders to tailor services to their region’s employment and workforce needs,” said Kline. “The job training reform recently signed into law will help Minnesotans find good-paying jobs by improving existing federal workforce development programs and fostering the modern workforce businesses in this state and across the country rely on to compete.”
The United States is currently facing a driver shortage that is estimated to grow to over 230,000 by 2022. WIOA is designed to recognize in-demand professions, like truck driving, and ensure they are able to receive and appropriately leverage more workforce funding. If successful, it will help stem the driver shortage and meet the growing needs of carriers across the country. To read more click here.
