Simply creating jobs is not always enough to improve the economy. There have to be qualified, educated workers ready to fill those positions, or else those jobs remain unfilled, and the applicants looking for work must continue looking. The Ohio House and other state agencies have remained committed to finding ways to prepare the workforce we need to fill the available jobs. With oil and natural gas drilling taking off in Southeast Ohio, the demand for capable, drug-free workers has never been greater. We want to fill these jobs with qualified Ohio workers, rather than be reduced to looking elsewhere.
