California Manufacturers & Technology Associaton (CMTA) President Lance Hastings made the following statement today regarding Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Equitable Recovery for California Businesses and Jobs Plan proposal:
The U.S. Department of Labor announced in September the availability of $150 million in funding through the H-1B One Workforce Grant Program for training middle-to-high-skilled H-1B occupations within key economic sectors, including information technology and cyber security, advanced manufacturing, and transportation.
“I Make CA” campaign is designed to spotlight the many opportunities manufacturing workers enjoy in the different regions of the state, and the tremendous pride they have in their careers and work product.
We help manufacturers compete in California with sensible laws and regulations since 1918. You can trust our decades of experience to fight for manufacturers' interest so you can focus on making goods that MAKE California. Let us be your voice and keep you informed.
