High Skills, High Wages -- Washington's 10-Year Strategic Plan for Workforce Development

In 2014, the Washington state Legislature formally approved High Skills, High Wages - Washington's 10-Year Strategic Plan for Workforce Development.. It serves as the guiding document for the state's workforce development system.

In September of 2012, when the Workforce Board approved High Skills, High Wages, it received the unanimous support from the business and labor representatives who serve on the Workforce Board.

News Release.


Jeff Johnson, president of the Washington State Labor Council, and a Workforce Board member.
"In today’s economy, to get ahead, workers need the chance to learn at their job and get short-term training that can be stacked together into an industry-recognized credential that helps them advance up the career ladder into higher-level, better paid positions."

"“Input from private employers is key to helping define the skills and abilities Washington workers need to succeed. We encourage more employers to get involved at all levels, whether it’s speaking to kids in a classroom or providing on-the-job training and internships.”


Don Brunell, former president of the Association of Washington Business and past Workforce Board member.
