My District Office interns saw President Obama speak at L.A. Trade Technical College this morning. The President spoke about the importance of the training and education community colleges provide to our youth and underemployed residents. My District Office interns know the value of a community college education: two of them began their collegiate careers at East L.A. Community College and are now at Cal State and UC schools. As Secretary of Labor Tom Perez stated at the event, "Community colleges are the secret sauce for success for our workforce.” And his department is backing up these words with action: L.A. Trade Technical College received a $10 million Department of Labor grant in September to prepare our future health care workforce.
