Michigan Governor Sees Vocational Schools as Economic Key

Government and businesses will be better off if they can encourage more students to enter vocational training, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said at an annual gathering of auto-industry officials.

People skilled in trades are needed in the workplace more than ever, said Snyder, speaking at the Center for Automotive Research’s annual Management Briefing Seminar near Traverse City, Michigan. That’s especially true in Michigan, where 70,000 jobs are open, many of them in industries, including autos, that require skilled workers.
