Mike Parson on Jobs

 

 


Fast Track: scholarships for technical training

Governor Parson announced $22 million towards a new scholarship program called Fast Track, which will allow Missourians to receive training in high-demand areas largely taught at our community colleges, technical schools, colleges, and universities. The Governor also announced $10 million towards a new fund known as Missouri One Start, which is an increase and consolidation of the Missouri Works program, aimed at assisting new and existing businesses with upgrading their workers' skills to build out their workforce needs. Further, he announced $16 million for the creation of Missouri Excels, a program for Missouri Higher Education Institutions to develop and expand employer-driven education, training programs, and initiatives to increase career readiness.

Low unemployment rate now, but new skills needed to move up

Parson sat down with a KSHB-41 Action News reporter to talk about issues that matter to people living in the "Show Me" state.

On Jobs: Parson: "We have the lowest unemployment rate that Missouri has seen in a couple decades. Interesting fact is on a federal level, food stamps recipients are down 2.2 million and that is a good sign. Now all we need them to do is to have the skills to move up in the workforce, to get that quality job and stand on their own two feet."
