The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers is supporting legislation to help small businesses develop work-based learning programs.

The legislation, referred to as the PARTNERS (Promoting Apprenticeships through Regional Training Networks for Employers’ Required Skills) Act, was recently introduced by Reps. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR-1) and Drew Ferguson (R-GA-3). It would help small businesses by creating a grant program to develop industry partnerships, work-based learning programs, and mentoring and support services for workers.

“The most significant challenge in the woodworking industry today is the lack of skilled workers,” says AWFS public policy chair Rob Howell. “This bill can directly benefit companies in our industry and will help us build the skilled workforce that we need.”
