Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) introduced the High-Tech Job Opportunities Between our Shores Act, or High-Tech JOBS Act. The legislation would create pilot programs for educational institutions and workplace investment boards to partner with manufacturers and train workers for advanced-manufacturing careers. “This bill is a direct result of conversations with West Virginians,” said Rockefeller in a statement. “It would create good manufacturing jobs by providing essential training. It’s in our best interest to make sure that American workers have the skills they need to get these high-tech jobs.”
