McAuliffe Unveils New Economic Plan

According to The Washington Post, Governor McAuliffe unveiled a plan to better train workers for skilled jobs and speed up the employment of military veterans on Wednesday. In a rare show of bipartisanship, this is a policy that Republican leaders say they can get behind.

The program, the “New Virginia Economy Workforce Initiative,” focuses on developing “middle-skill” jobs that are in high demand and do not require a 4-year degree. McAuliffe announced the program to a group of community college educators but did not mention how the program would be funded or where it would be housed.
