An available, qualified and trainable workforce is a key factor to recruiting new industry and sustaining existing industry. The competitiveness of today’s labor market is fierce. Today’s industry is comprised of high-tech manufacturing businesses, health care providers and service organizations that require their workers to have technical skills. Many jobs today incorporate technology that was not available even five or ten years ago.

Workforce Fact:
