Workforce: Obama's Policy Positions

June 1, 2012

Here's some of President Obama's workforce policy positions: 

HIGHER EDUCATION: Obama says that the United States should lead the world in college-graduation rates by 2020. He has pushed to expand the size of, and access to, Pell Grants for students from low-income families, increasing the maximum per-student amount.(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

K-12: Obama considers the Education Department’s Race to the Top competitive-grant program, which encourages state-level school reforms, to be one of his crowning domestic-policy achievements.(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

JOB TRAINING: In March, the White House unveiled Obama’s job-training strategy—“a streamlined reemployment system.”(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

 

IMMIGRATION: Obama wants to boost high-skilled immigration by attaching green cards to Ph.D.s or diplomas in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics earned in the U.S. He also advocates a new start-up visa, encouraging foreign entrepreneurs who receive U.S. investment to set up shop here, giving them permanent residency if their businesses create domestic jobs and generate revenue.(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

UNIONS: Unions cheer Obama for his trio of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in February and his support of the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to form unions.(AP Photo/The News & Observer, Chuck Liddy)
