L&I highlights Wolf Admin’s PAsmart investment in workforce development | News

Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) Secretary Jennifer Berrier today joined workforce development professionals to celebrate the achievements of Governor Tom Wolf’s PAsmart initiative, through which the commonwealth has invested more than $40 million since 2018 to enhance opportunities for Pennsylvania workers through apprenticeship programs and to strengthen Pennsylvania’s overall economy through industry partnerships.

“When the Wolf Administration launched the PAsmart initiative in 2018, it was our goal to dismantle barriers separating Pennsylvania workers from in-demand job skills and family-sustaining wages. We did not know that a pandemic would upend the global economy just a few years later–creating even more urgency to identify and implement solutions,” Berrier said. “This work is even more important today than it was when the PAsmart initiative began. The challenges of our economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic are significant, but Pennsylvania is overcoming those challenges because we have invested in collaboration across the commonwealth to build innovative apprenticeship programs and strengthen partnerships among industry leaders.”
