While addressing issues with the economy and touting the Build Back Better Act, Sen. Amy Klobuchar said recruiting kids into the workforce will combat shortages. 

"We've got workforce issues, and that's why this Build Back Better Act is so important," Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, said on ABC News' This Week

"We need people, we need kids to go into jobs that we have shortages. We don't have a shortage of marketing degrees, we have a shortage of health care workers. We have a shortage of plumbers, electricians, construction workers, and this bill puts us on the right path," Klobuchar said. 

"To me, that's what we do about the problem right in front of us, which is to have the backs of the American people. That's our top priority," Klobuchar said.
