Michigan has a skills gap – too few workers for skilled occupations like welding, pharmacy technicians and computer network support specialists. MCUL has created new materials to address Michigan’s skills gap for use by credit unions, schools, parents and others who are interested in helping our youth and building Michigan’s workforce.
