Florida Chamber Outlines Education Priorities in Legislative Agenda

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

Did you know that there are 221,000 jobs looking for people, and 383,000 people looking for jobs? Employers need talent that is prepared to enter the workforce and Florida wins when we close the talent gap. That talent is cultivated through education.

The Orlando Business Journal wrote that building a qualified workforce is a top concern for job creators.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce recently released its 2018 Jobs and Competitiveness Agenda. The agenda calls for the business community to redouble efforts on workforce education and expand pathways to Florida’s attainment goals, amongst other calls to action. A complete listing of the Jobs Agenda is available at: www.FloridaChamber.com/WhereWeStand.
