Jobs Creation Commission to Announce Recommendations
Commission will release Final Report at Wednesday press conference
BOSTON – While the Massachusetts economy continues to recover more quickly than the nation, including having an unemployment rate that has been consistently and significantly lower than the national average, over 438,000 Massachusetts residents reported being unemployed or underemployed as of June 2012.
On Wednesday, the Jobs Creation Commission will release their Final Report that will address what additional work can be done to propel economic growth, create jobs, and help Massachusetts maintain its competitive edge.
The Jobs Creation Commission was established by an act of the legislature to make an investigation and study relative to the economy in order to create and maintain quality jobs in the Commonwealth. To address its mission, the Commission convened monthly meetings, conducted a regional hearing tour, and formed three subcommittees. The Commission’s Final Report will outline their suggestions on how to mitigate barriers to job creation, leverage the strengths of the Massachusetts economy, and better align the needs of employers with the available workforce.
