Ohio Strong


Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has launched a new effort called ‘Ohio Strong’ to help recognize men and women in manufacturing and the skilled trades, and raise public awareness to encourage more people to pursue careers in these fields.  

Treasurer Mandel has been meeting with small businesses, family manufacturing companies, vocational training providers, job creators, and workers throughout Ohio.  They all reinforce the need for a renewed focus on preparing Ohio’s workforce for jobs in modern manufacturing and the skilled trades.  Recent statistics illustrate the need for a change in approach:
  • A recent Bureau of Labor Statistics study showed 48 percent of college graduates are working in jobs that don't require a four-year degree.  
  • According to a recent Skills Gap Survey by the Manufacturing Institute, approximately 600,000 manufacturing jobs are unfilled nationally because employers can't find qualified workers.  

One component of the Ohio Strong effort is recognizing men and women throughout our state who are excelling in careers in manufacturing and the skilled trades with an Ohio Strong Award.  Treasurer Mandel is currently seeking nominees. View our award page for more information and to submit an online nomination. Click here to nominate.
