Guess who said it: workforce development edition

INDIANAPOLIS – If Statehouse Republicans’ pronouncements on workforce development all sound a bit familiar, that’s because they are. Governor Eric Holcomb has largely recycled the same stale ideas that have left one million Hoosier workers behind. Don’t think so? Try and guess which Republican governor said the following on workforce initiatives.

WHO SAID IT?

“Representatives from business, education, labor, economic and workforce development developed these plans, which will identify and quantify short-term and long-term skills shortages, and create and implement regional solutions…used to fully integrate regional workforce strategies that leverage the strengths of each area’s strongest industries and meets the needs of the future workforce needs to make Indiana globally competitive.”

a.) Governor Eric Holcomb

b.) Governor Mike Pence

c.) Governor Mitch Daniels

“We’re going to have local talent cabinets consisting of educators, business leaders, elected officials, community stakeholders and they’ll have the flexibility and the funding that they need to design training programs that make sense for their economic conditions. “

a.) Governor Eric Holcomb

b.) Governor Mike Pence

c.) Governor Mitch Daniels

“To expand career and technical education I propose we create regional works councils to work with businesses and educators across the state to develop regional, demand-driven curriculum. “

Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody questioned the lack of fresh ideas for an issue that impacts one million Hoosiers.

“After more than a decade of controlling the governor’s office, it sure seems like Indiana Republicans are getting a little too comfortable,” said Zody. “Why else would Governor Holcomb recycle the same tired ideas that haven’t and won’t solve Indiana’s workforce crisis? One million Hoosiers lack the skills they need to compete and your idea is more of the same? A caretaker governor won’t cut it, taxpayers want a leader with big, bold ideas. Anything less is a waste of time.”
