MAPE-represented DEED employee speaks at Kuwait University
Minnesota, Kuwait Face Similar Workforce Development Challenges
(An update on a MAPE member we introduced you to last Veteran’s Day: https://mape.org/news/veterans-day-has-special-meaning)
MAPE represented DEED employee, Chet Bodin (Local 1601) was invited to speak with students and faculty at Kuwait University about labor market analysis and Minnesota’s approach to workforce development.
“Labor shortages are not as acute in Kuwait as in most of the U.S. However, they face similar challenges in preparing youth for the workforce, and there is much less variety in the kinds of work opportunities available,” he said.
