This study investigates and reports on the status and influence of Workforce Education and Development and its importance on the economy. This report relies almost exclusively on data from the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. This study also establishes that the skilled workforce depends on career and technical programs for skill training as the recipe to the success of economy growth in the U.S. The report also emerged from analysis of many other studies, especially, the Labor Bureau Statistics on the state of the economy, unemployment rate, the labor force, employment growth, and the importance of education and training as key to promoting economic growth in the country. The report also justifies and validates the author’s notion on the importance of workforce education and development in the 21st century as a way of developing economic growth and providing learning to make individuals competitive in the global economy.
