September is National Workforce Development Month. The government wanted to acknowledge that workforce development plays a crucial role in supporting workers and growing the economy. Senator Feinstein said, “Our resolution recognizes the vital role workforce development plays in growing America’s next generation of workers as well as supporting the advancement of current professionals looking for new employment opportunities.” (https://www.feinstein.senate.gov)
