Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills
In 1990, the Secretary of Labor appointed a commission to determine the
skills our young people need to succeed in the world of work. The
commission's fundamental purpose was to encourage a high-performance
economy characterized by high-skill, high-wage employment. Although the
commission completed its work in 1992, its findings and recommendations
continue to be a valuable source of information for individuals and
organizations involved in education and workforce development.
