Minnesota steps up efforts to help employers fill jobs as tight labor market continues
27 Sep 2023
Minnesota has added jobs in eight of the past 12 months.
It's still not enough, Matt Varilek, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), said at an event to kick off Workforce Development Month in the state.
The message is not new, but state and city officials hammered it home Wednesday as Gov. Tim Walz traveled to the Iron Range to laud two state-funded expansions and Varilek and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey helped kick off a job fair at the north Minneapolis CareerForce center.
