IBM is pushing congressional leaders to update workforce legislation aimed at helping workers get technical skills necessary from the growing number of technology-related vocational jobs. In a letter, the legacy tech giant, leading a coalition of 400 organizations, urged the chairman of the Senate Health Committee, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), as well as its top Democrat, Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), to reauthorize the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act.
