PA state lawmakers are taking notice of skilled-worker shortage

08.28.19 | Terry Diener

The National Federation of Independent Businesses said in mid-August – the commonwealth needs more skilled workers, especially truck drivers, nurses, and health care workers.

Members of the House Majority Policy Committee toured some businesses in the state, and the common theme they heard was if they had more people they could do more business.

The House committee is trying to find solutions, including offering incentives to students and pre-apprenticeship programs.
