NORTHEAST REGIONAL LABOR MARKET BLUEPRINT – DRAFT NOW AVAILABLE for PUBLIC REVIEW and COMMENT

Across Massachusetts, economic growth is currently constrained by a labor shortage that many jobseekers cannot fill because they do not possess the requisite skills. For the past nine months, in partnership with the Massachusetts Workforce Skills Cabinet, the Merrimack Valley, North Shore, and Greater Lowell Workforce Boards led a region-wide planning effort to develop strategies that bridge this gap. Included in this effort were the region’s workforce, economic development, education, and business leaders.

The resultant Northeast Regional Labor Market Blueprint outlines priority and critical industries and occupations and strategies to support these industries and occupations.

This draft Blueprint is now available for public review and comment through March 2, 2018. Once the comment period ends, the Blueprint will be finalized and become a focal point for resource allocations and programs that will strengthen the Northeast economy now and into the future.

All comments are welcomed during the comment period of January 31, 2018 to March 2, 2018.
