Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is today launching a new program, “Go Build Georgia,” designed to bring down the state’s unemployment rate with more training for skilled trades. “It’s going to help tremendously,” says Beth Herman, regional director for ManpowerGroup. Herman notes she has a difficult time filling job openings for welders, machinists, and forklift operators. “It’s a real misconception that there are no jobs in manufacturing,” says Herman. “It’s not just manufacturing. It could be a pharmaceutical company that has a warehouse, or it could be a retail organization that has a warehouse. In that warehouse, there could be packers, shipping and receiving, forklifts, a person that has pallets around. It’s across all industries, not just in manufacturing.”
