About This Meeting
In an exclusive meeting for Detroit Economic Club members, Governor Rick Snyder discussed programs to address the talent gap in Michigan and how people can work together for the betterment of the state.
Looking back, Snyder said that day one as governor the question was ‘where are the jobs?’ After positive economic growth and adding the new Marshall Plan for Talent, it’s different. “Now the question has changed to how do I get the skills, how do I get the training to get those well-paying jobs out there today?” he said.
Snyder also said that despite the national climate, Michigan can be a role model for civility. “The challenge now as Michiganders is that we can take that foundation and do it for our kids and those after us to continue on that path but also the nation and the rest of the world that we know how to solve problems together.”
