On August 7, 1998... the Workforce Investment Act was signed into law.  It reformed federal job training programs and created a new, extensive workforce investment system.

The reformed system is intended to be customer-focused in order to assist Americans accessing information and services needed to manage their careers while at the same time helping businesses locate skilled workers.

The Goal of the Act... is to increase employment, retention and earnings of customers. In doing so, the quality of the workforce will improve such that economic growth will be sustained, productivity and competitiveness will be enhanced, and welfare dependency will be reduced.

As an integral part of the Workforce Development System, the Baton Rouge Business and Career Solution Center is designed to provide integration of workforce development services to insure a seamless service environment for our customers-both employers and job seekers alike.
