Currently, there are more than 31,000 open jobs in the U.S. marine industry. These are jobs that require skilled workers and would support our recreational boating industry. The industry is ready to hire thousands of new workers, but first it needs the support of policymakers.
The American Workforce Empowerment Act, H.R. 4469, would expand the types of programs eligible for 529 education savings plans to include post-secondary trade school programs and registered apprenticeship programs. This will help increase access to training and therefore fill open positions.
A strong next generation workforce is an important part of a prosperous recreational boating industry and U.S. economy.
