McCombie appointed to Advisory Board for Manufacturing Training Grant

4b8e519f-f171-401c-9b56-b02ef2713276I am honored Leader Durkin appointed me to serve on the 21st Century Employment Grant Advisory Board,” said McCombie.  “This program is one way we can start to stem the tide of the exodus of Illinoisans across our borders.  While many of us are working on broader policies that can help keep job creators here, this is one way we can help ensure they have a fully trained workforce to meet their needs.”

“Illinois manufacturers employ 592,000 women and men on factory floors today but face a tremendous challenge as these workers retire. Building a strong manufacturing workforce is critical,” said Mark Denzler, president & CEO of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association. “We applaud Rep. McCombie’s leadership in addressing the skills gap through this new job training program.”
