The Pay Down, Upskill Act of 2021
As the nation rebuilds from the pandemic, a large-scale federal investment in the U.S. workforce is critical. Thankfully, Congress can make that happen by passing the Pay Down, Upskill Act of 2021, introduced by Representative Conor Lamb (D-PA). This bill gives Americans between the ages of 18 and 65 a one-time $10,000 education credit that they can use to pay down student loans or upskill for the future economy, and it’s a smart investment of taxpayer dollars as it benefits far more American workers than proposals focused on student debt alone – including those with no college education.
