Making Wisconsin more attractive for the trades

State Senator Andre Jacque was with US Representative Mike Gallagher for a tour of Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding Saturday afternoon. The two held a lengthy question-and-answer session for the media touching on a range of subjects. Jacque was focused on technical careers and attracting the best talent from across the country to help ensure there is an ample supply of labor for Wisconsin manufacturers. Jacque spoke to the difficulty of students certified as electricians through an apprenticeship program being unable to get continuing education credits. He also pointed to difficulties in other trades.


Bay Ship gave Gallagher, Jacque, and Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward a comprehensive tour of the yard following the presentation.
