iReport Debate: What’s your top issue?
Strong Economy, Strong Workforce
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
Jannet Walsh, iReporter from Murdock, Minn., shares her ideas on what she thinks is needed for our nation to move forward. A strong economy, workforce and a president with a proven background in business, but also with compassion for the nation’s poor and displaced workers.
Jannet suggests the U.S. Department of Labor, along with the workforce center, and displaced workers, all need training and education on how to create multiple flows of income for the next time workers are laid off, while preparing for a changing economy.
We are no longer living in the industrial age, working for only one or two companies or organizations, but potentially several job or careers during a lifetime. Training our nation’s displaced workers how to find work or create their own jobs, self-employment, should be essential or required training for displaced workers.
Selecting our nation’s next president is the first priority to move the economy in a positive and thriving direction.
