President Biden has proposed $100 billion dollars for workforce training over the next ten years as part of the American Jobs Plan, the infrastructure proposal being debated in Congress. But for decades, manufacturers in the U.S. have warned of a massive skills gap: not enough new workers with the skills needed to replace those who are retirement age. In the latest installment of our series "Roads to Recovery" NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker reports from southwestern Connecticut on how the pandemic has accelerated a push to improve and expand the state's manufacturing workforce. The story is part of our initiative Chasing the Dream: poverty, economic opportunity and justice in America.
