There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Economic Change and the American Workforce
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report asserts that U.S. economic changes are significantly affecting the nation's workers and calls-for adoption of a new workforce-development agenda. The report is based on studies of economic forces in Colorado, Indiana, Mississippi, and Missouri (states considered broadly representative of the nation as a whole) and of public and private responses to these forces. It recommends creating a system of lifelong, work-based learning making education and training institutions accountable for serving workforce needs; improving school-to-work transition; restructuring businesses to increase skills; and involving citizens in workforce development efforts.
