“We must continue to educate and train our workforce through existing programs, such as apprenticeship and traineeship, while instilling career readiness skills in the next generation of Montanans,” said Governor Bullock. “I also encourage businesses to look for innovative ways to recruit and retain qualified employees and advocate for policy that supports working families, such as publicly funded preschool education, equal pay legislation, and flexible scheduling.”
