House to vote on GoodJobs4PA law

HARRISBURG–This week, a package of bills advances to the full House for a vote to “improve our workforce development and career and technical education opportunities and (advance) policies to help transition people from minimum wage jobs to family-sustaining careers,” said State Rep. John Hershey (R-Mifflintown.)

Hershey said the bills would also create a comprehensive online CTE resource center and coordinate a state-level career exploration and workforce development opportunities. Improving the way CTE works in Pennsylvania also would include putting at least one K-12 career and technical center administrator on each Workforce Development Board and creating a database with information on where courses, programs, certificates and diplomas transfer among public schools and institutions of higher education.
