"It is more confusing than ever to understand what training, education, and experience is valued in today’s dynamic and changing economy. But with leaders in labor and business coming together through Credential Engine, job seekers and employers can access tools to decipher which credentials lead to careers – a strategy that can benefit all working families."
- Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
