Opportunities, Training, and a Living Wage

Many candidates speak about job creation. What we need to talk about is employment opportunities that create sustainable economic growth in a modern economy. Job creation that pays below the poverty line does not serve Minnesota well. Affordable technical education, college and apprenticeship opportunities are the pathway to sustainable growth and living wages.

Today’s workforce must be ready to change as the needs of our markets change. No longer are people working in one place or one industry for 30-plus years. Benefits need portability and flexibility. Employers need a workforce trained to be the most productive and skilled in the world. The economy needs to work for all Minnesotans, not just those at top.
