The co-chairs of the legislature’s job creation commission are bringing their act to Plymouth next Wednesday.

Senator Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) and Representative Joseph Wagner (D-Chicopee) have previously held hearings in Holyoke, Worcester and Lynn. Now, they’ll be joined by Senate President Therese Murray to hear from Plymouth-area businesses at the Plymouth Public Library. Also invited to participate are Plymouth Career Center Director Kevin Parnham and Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Denis Hanks. Local business executives and labor leaders are also expected to take part.

According to a press release, the hearings are intended to give commissioners an overview of the challenges people face looking for work. Three panels, one consisting of job seekers, another of local business owners and a third of human resources professionals will each give their perspectives on the job market. Residents will also have a chance to be heard.

The hearing takes place Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Plymouth Public Library at 132 South St.
