LANSING, Mich. – Today, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after Governor Gretchen Whitmerissued an executive order to restructure the state’s workforce and economic development functions by creating the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity:

“Governor Whitmer knows that, in order to grow our economy, we must be laser-focused on creating pathways to good-paying jobs with benefits and upward mobility. As a former teacher and career advisor, I saw that the skills our young people had did not match the needs of today’s employers. By creating the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, and refocusing our talent development efforts to be more people-focused, we can give Michiganders a new shot at success.”
