Workforce Development as an Antipoverty Strategy: What Do We Know? What Should We Do? Edit Title

This paper suggests that although skills are a increasingly important necessity in the current labor market, federal spending on workforce development has decreased over time. The paper reviews studies of cost effectiveness of programs for adults and children and recent developments in workforce policy, then includes policy recommendations.
