Stabenow touts careers in the skilled trades during West Michigan visit

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Lansing, held a discussion Wednesday, Aug. 30, with West Michigan business, education, and labor leaders about how to better meet the ongoing challenge employers have finding enough skilled workers to fill positions.


Stabenow, who is on the tail end of a week-long series of workforce discussions across the state, also got input from students and parents in attendance at the Kent Career Technical Center.


“When we talk about going forward and getting skills, it is not all about four-year colleges,” Stabenow said. “There are a variety of careers and jobs beyond high school that involve skills but don’t necessarily mean going to a four-year college.”
