Gov. Rick Snyder says he wants to spend his last year in office focused on creating a workforce to fill more than 800,000 current and future openings.
He calls it a “Marshall Plan” for developing talent, borrowing the name of the massive effort to rebuild Europe after World War II. It aims to invest in training for jobs in skilled trades, information technology, and health care.
Snyder said he’s made filling positions in sought-after high-tech fields a priority already.
“But we need a capstone accelerator. That’s what the Marshall Plan is – to accelerate this.”
