Gov. Shumlin to talk workforce development
The Associated Pres | July 31,2013
MONTPELIER - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is heading to the Cabot Cooperative Creamery headquarters to talk about job training.
Shumlin spokeswoman Susan Allen says the governor will be talking about re-prioritizing the millions of dollars in job training funds it gets each year from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Vermont's job training needs are changing, in part due to the major economic development initiative under way in northern Vermont. But the changes are expected to apply to employers around Vermont, many of whom say they need more trained workers.
