I recently had the opportunity to tour Butler Tech, a career technical school within the 53rd Ohio House District that launched a new Workforce Services department. Workforce development has been an important focal point of the state over the past few years, as we’ve created programs and encouraged policies that facilitate a better connection between the labor force and education.

Departments like Workforce Services at Butler Tech help many looking for employment gain skills and qualifications through alternative avenues.
