DeWine proposes $200M in workforce initiatives

Ohio workforce development

Ohio businesses are facing a skills mismatch because they can’t find enough trained workers. That’s the message from the office of Gov. Mike DeWine along with his plan to invest over $200 million in workforce development and retraining.

The proposed 2020-21 executive budget aims to helps workers retool their skills so they can break into an in-demand field. One example is to offer “micro-degrees,” which are low-cost credentials that take a student less than a year to complete.

DeWine wants to create a “culture of innovation” in our state and these initiatives are a great start.
