On January 30, 2014, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum to Secretaries of the Departments of Labor, Commerce and Education directing them to take action to address job-driven training for America's workers. He states: "It is critical that the Federal Government ensure that its policies and programs in the workforce and training system are designed to equip the Nation's workers with skills matching the needs of employers looking to hire. As part of the overall review process led by Vice President Biden, the memorandum directs that within 180 days, the Office of the Vice President, the National Economic Council, the Domestic Policy Council, the Council of Economic Advisers, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the Office of Management and Budget, the Secretaries of Labor, Commerce, and Education (Secretaries), in consultation with other executive departments and agencies as appropriate, shall develop a specific action plan, to be provided to me through the Vice President, to make the workforce and training system more job-driven, integrated, and effective.
