Wide Support For Workforce Bill

Augusta - Training Maine workers to fill Maine's jobs is a plan that's getting widespread support.  Leaders from business and labor joined Democrats and Republicans at the State House to back a bill that would make a number of investments in job training.  The measure would expand training at community colleges, offer more educational programs in rural areas, and make it easier for students to transfer credits between community colleges and the University of Maine system.  Maine Community College System president John Fitzsimmons told the crowd in Augusta there are 50-thousand unemployed Mainers, and thousands of unfilled jobs because Maine doesn't have enough trained workers.
