One of the issues we came across in our research is that the U.S. government’s spendings on employment and training programs are ridiculously low when compared to the amount of money poured on such programs by the U.S. industry. See here -
“According to the 2014 “Ready to Work” Federal report, the U.S. government’s employment and training programs have received only $17 billion in that year. The year before that, businesses in the U.S. spent nearly half a trillion USD - more than 25 times the amount the government spent - on training.”*
Do you think the government should increase its spendings on employment and training programs? Or should we leave this task to the industry?
