A bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats, including Gary Schaer (Bergen, Passaic Counties) was advanced Monday by the Assembly Labor Committee.
The bill requires the New Jersey Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development to include in the annual report an analysis of the effect of the training on workers’ wages and employment and to determine the long term effectiveness of the training.
The report is also mandated to include an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the training program and how it can be improved in the following year.
“This bill facilitates the analysis of the training impact by requiring the collection, and reporting by the consortium, of information regarding worker employment status and wage rates prior to the training compared to the status and rates during the first, second and third fiscal year after the training ends,” Schaer said in a statement.
