OMA Member Addresses U.S. House Subcommittee on Jobs

This week Steve Staub, President, Staub Manufacturing Solutions, Dayton, and member of the OMA and NAM boards of directors, offered testimony before the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Resources on Jobs and Opportunity: Employer Perspectives on the Jobs Gap.

Staub provided insights about a wide range of workforce issues that he and other domestic manufacturers face.

He made this statement about the industry sector partnership initiative underway in Ohio: “When manufacturers combine their talents and resources and align priorities, great things can happen. Progress has been made to excite people about manufacturing jobs, such as recruiting veterans, women and other underrepresented populations as well as showcasing the promise of manufacturing to America’s youth through events like national Manufacturing Day. In Ohio, we are setting up Industry Sector Partnerships throughout the state. These partnerships are an industry-led workforce development strategy that brings together educators and the public workforce system. This is no easy task, but it’s a challenge we have accepted and why I am here today.”
