"This bill would direct the Dept. of Energy (DOE) to prioritize education and training for energy and manufacturing-related jobs to increase the number of skilled workers trained in those fields. Included in this effort would be businesses involved in those industries, educational institutions, workforce development organizations at the state and community level, and other federal agencies. The sectors of the energy and manufacturing industries covered by this bill include energy efficiency, pipelines, utilities, oil and gas, coal, and renewable sources — in addition to advanced manufacturing and construction." WE ALREADY HAVE SKILLED WORKERS IN MANUFACTURING AND ENERGY! However, the Obama Administration is doing everything it can to terminate jobs in these areas, and is succeeding quite well. So what is the point is government spending money to train more people for fewer jobs? Illogical to any thinking person, but, of course, not to a liberal.
