Employment-Based Visas Will Help Address Skilled Workforce Shortage

Washington, D.C., – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued this statement after the NAM announced it would key vote in support of H.R. 6429, the STEM Jobs Act:

“Modern manufacturing is based on technology and innovation. As a result, manufacturing is critically dependent on a workforce that is trained in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). By increasing the number of employment opportunities available for individuals who have proven their knowledge and experience in these fields, we provide manufacturers another tool to strengthen their workforce and grow their business.

As our global economy grows more competitive, we must make every effort to ensure that, in the absence of qualified homegrown candidates, foreign-born students educated in the United States have the opportunity to apply their talents here rather than taking them abroad. More work must be done to strengthen our STEM education system, but this is an important step in ensuring that we have the talent and knowledge to close the skills gap and meet the employment needs of manufacturers in the United States.”

The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
