Despite a low unemployment rate, Indiana has about 95,000 job openings statewide, with another 1 million jobs expected to open up by 2025.
Filling those jobs will be daunting task, and it must be addressed now, Indiana Gov. Eric J. Holcomb said Monday as he announced two state grants that will put more than $20 million into workforce and employer training.
“Growing our workforce and making ourselves ready for this 21 Century … is something that we have been focused on every day since I took office. We know that here in the western part of the state, there are nearly 2,700 unfilled jobs right now, calling for that workforce,” Holcomb said.
