The future of Florida remains bright if we invest in high-paying jobs, education and training our workers.
Bill Nelson is working to build a future that works by investing in programs and industries in Florida that create well-paying jobs and careers. As demand continues to grow for workers who have science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills and technology advances into automation, employees are forced to retrain and reskill for new jobs, which is why Bill has led efforts to invest in these programs and higher education.
To help workers and businesses navigate changes in the economy, he introduced the Economic Modernization Act to assist Floridians affected by automation and globalization. Bill is pushing Congress to invest in ways to keep Florida working in the future including tax credits for workers looking to change careers or transition into modernized industries and enhance education-related tax breaks to encourage people to pursue industries in short supply of skilled workers.
