Michigan’s Snyder Vows to Lead U.S. in Skilled-Job Training

Updated on

Michigan will lead the U.S. in training people for unfilled jobs in an economy that relies increasingly on skilled trades for growth, Governor Rick Snyder said.

While Michigan’s economic health has improved at a faster rate than every state except North Dakota since June 2009, more jobs go begging, the second-term Republican said Friday in an interview in his Ann Arbor office, where he once worked as a venture capitalist. Training and connecting workers for those better-paying positions is a priority, he said.
