Jindal: Workforce Development Needs To Be a Louisiana Priority

Governor Bobby Jindal
Dennis Foley

The Louisiana legislative session is just two months away and Governor Bobby Jindal says he top priority will be workforce development.

Since Jindal took office, he’s announced several significant economic development projects that will create thousands of jobs.  Jindal said with those projects getting underway, it’s time to find workers to fill those jobs.

Jindal said to fill these jobs, the administration will help more students succeed by creating training programs to fit the needs of the economy.  They will focus not only on keeping students in school from kindergarten through 12th grade, but getting them into higher education.

The governor added Louisiana’s economy is growing 50% faster than the national economy with the help of new jobs.  Jindal said finding workers will be an important priority over the next few years and also for the next administration.
