Reemployment and Retraining Act. Hearing on Examining Provisions of S. 1964, Authorizing Funds to States for Worker Reemployment and Retraining Programs before the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources.
This document records the oral and written testimony of witnesses who testified at a Senate committee hearing concerning authorizing funds to states for worker reemployment and training programs. Witnesses included the following: Senators Claiborne Pell, Nancy Kassebaum, and Edward Kennedy; top officials from several major corporations; and several federal, state, and city officials involved in labor retraining and employment programs. The testimony generally supported the proposed legislation, which would create one-stop retraining and employment services for dislocated workers. An executive from a large private corporation headquartered in Germany testified that in Germany, all companies provide training, but that in the United States few companies provide training because trained workers could go to other companies that do not provide training. He supported one-stop employment centers and financial incentives for companies to provide training for workers to encourage more companies to do so. (KC)
