NRMCA Participates in Industry Workforce Discussions
As part of a robust effort to address the industry’s workforce challenges, NRMCA Government Affairs staff has joined discussions with other industry groups to identify federal policies that could help alleviate difficulties with driver shortages, worker qualifications and other workforce-related challenges. These could include potential legislation to reduce the federal minimum driver age for interstate trucking, reauthorization of career and technical education and workforce readiness programs. Included in discussions are groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Associated General Contractors, National Stone Sand and Gravel Association, Portland Cement Association, Association of Equipment Manufacturers and Associated Equipment Distributors.
