Strong Workforce

Overview

Building Georgia’s economy, cultivating good jobs and strengthening our workforce can ensure opportunity is broadly shared among all Georgians. Expanded job training opportunities, a higher minimum wage, new pro-work tax credits and more investment in transportation and other building blocks of growth are proven ways to attract and retain high-wage industries and jobs. Ensuring the benefits of growth are enjoyed by people of all backgrounds can help build a more inclusive economy that maximizes Georgia’s ability to compete.
