Pennsylvania manufacturing jobs grow
Posted on February 5, 2019
The number of Pennsylvania manufacturing jobs are growing, according to new city reports.
More than 100 new jobs are coming to the commonwealth as businesses expand across the state, including Elk, Potter, Dauphin, and Lebanon counties.
A focus on apprenticeship and job training continues to be paramount to the Wolf Administration. This month, Pennsylvania schools and students received more than $2 million in grants.
Through January, Pennsylvania will continue to build on successful investments in schools, businesses, and residents.
Governor Wolf announced more than $2.6 million in federally funded Business-Education Partnership grants to 22 local workforce development boards. The grants will connect businesses and schools to provide students with soft skills, internships, workplace shadowing, and mentoring opportunities.
Through the governor’s PAsmart initiative, workers at Bosch Rexroth Corporation will also expand job training opportunities. The engineering company in Bethlehem received nearly $50,000 in grant funding to help train a new generation of employees.
