Statement from WIA Vice President, Government and Public Affairs Matt Mandel on the National Apprenticeship Act (H.R. 447):
“WIA appreciates the House focusing on apprenticeship – an effective method of training for the essential jobs of the future, including jobs created by 5G. Apprenticeship is a time-tested solution to developing the workforce needed to reap the benefits of 5G, including economic growth in virtually every sector. WIA is proud to have brought apprenticeship to the wireless industry, and we look forward to continuing to work with Congress on this important issue so the U.S. can win the global race to 5G.”
The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) represents the businesses that build, own, and operate the nation’s wireless infrastructure. On the federal, state, and local levels, WIA advocates for the widespread, responsible deployment of wireless infrastructure to enable mobile broadband access for communities everywhere.
