Preparing Young People For Advanced Manufacturing Jobs
A demand for manufacturing workers in the Virginia tobacco growing region is expected to reach nearly 7- thousand jobs over the next five years. The report comes from the Virginia Tobacco Commission concluding that the supply of medium skilled workers will not meet demand. The job study was actually conducted by the Boston Consulting Group at the request of the Commonwealth to help the commission develop plans to improve the region's workforce. The former tobacco region stretches east from Lee County to Greenville County and officials hope to use the recommendations to prepare young people for the advanced manufacturing industries that are projected.
