Nov 10, 2017

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb visited the Ethos Science Center in Elkhart today to outline his priorities for the upcoming legislative session. The 2018 Next Level Agenda is the Governor’s plan to help build Indiana’s workforce.
 

One of the governor’s top priorities is to fill  more well paying and in demand jobs across the state. He said there’s about 92,000 jobs that are unfilled in the state alone, and about 29,000 more in the works that could remain unfilled if the state doesn’t address jobs training.
