The "Connecticut Manufacturing Job-Match Initiative" is aimed at not only developing the skills of a workforce to fill the current manufacturing job vacancies, but also one to compete for future high skilled jobs.
"Manufacturing is part of our DNA here in Connecticut," Congressman Larson said. "For over a hundred years our economy has been tied to a healthy manufacturing sector. This initiative will aim to create not only new manufacturing jobs, but a workforce that is properly trained and qualified to fill the future positions that will opening in various manufacturing fields."
In addition to helping bring new men and women into the manufacturing workforce, the initiative will help existing workers assess their existing skills and obtain new ones.
