Congresswoman Val Hoyle and Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor Julie Su Tour Workforce Training Centers

Programs focus on apprenticeships and workforce development – key to Biden Administration’s focus on job growth.  

Springfield, OR – Yesterday, U.S. Representative Val Hoyle (OR-04) and Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor Julie Su toured the UA Local 290 Training Facility and the Spark at Booth Kelly youth program (run by Connected Lane County), which offer apprenticeships and hands-on training. Programs like these are key to the Biden Administration’s push for infrastructure, job creation, and workforce training across the country and in Oregon. 

“Apprenticeship and workforce training programs like the ones we visited today are critical to fill our workforce needs. Every employer I visited has a need for workers. With 50% of today’s jobs needing more than a high school degree and less than a college degree, the registered apprenticeship model helps young people get the training they need for these family wage jobs without incurring mountains of debt.” said Rep. Hoyle. “I am grateful to Acting Labor Secretary Su and the Biden Administration for their ongoing investments in workforce development that puts the spotlight on job creation and pipelines to success.” 

 “When President Biden came into office, he promised to invest in America and create millions of good jobs in the process. He promised to build pathways to those jobs that reached into every community, especially those historically left behind, and develop a workforce for the future. Those are promises he has delivered on both here in Oregon and all across our country. Leaders like Congresswoman Hoyle are helping to make this once-in-a-generation opportunity to create good jobs possible. I would like to extend my thanks to Congresswoman Hoyle for being a great partner in this work and for hosting me in her district,” said Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor Julie Su. 

President Biden’s Administration has worked hard to support job growth through the Investing in America Agenda. The implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the CHIPS and Science Act are part of their commitment to improving infrastructure, creating sustainable jobs and advancing workforce training programs. These initiatives are pivotal for Oregon’s 4th Congressional District, bringing federal investment and job creation to the region.
