Governor Wolf Outlines Workforce Training, Restore Pennsylvania for Pipe Trades Workers

first_img Infrastructure,  Press Release Hershey, PA – With budget negotiations continuing with the legislature, Governor Tom Wolf outlined his plan to create the strongest workforce in the nation and address critical infrastructure needs across Pennsylvania. The governor spoke to hundreds of steamfitters, pipefitters, sprinkler fitters, plumbers, HVAC service technicians, and welders at the Pennsylvania Pipe Trade Association Conference in Hershey.“Our commonwealth needs more skilled workers with hands-on training for good jobs that offer family-sustaining wages,” said Governor Wolf. “These are exactly the type of jobs that will be in demand as we begin to address the state’s critical infrastructure needs through my Restore Pennsylvania plan. We can invest in worker training and make lasting improvements from our big cities to our rural communities.”The governor has a comprehensive plan to create the highly skilled and competitive workforce that employers need. The proposed Statewide Workforce, Education, and Accountability Program (SWEAP) expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and collaborates with the private sector to focus job training on in-demand skills. The program builds on the success of the innovative PAsmart initiative launched last year which is expanding science and technology education, apprenticeships and job training.Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax, will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years to help communities address blight, expand broadband access, mitigate the effects of localized flooding, and expand green infrastructure. The plan has bipartisan support in the legislature.Learn more about Gov. Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania plan.
