Mass. Marine Trades Association Workforce Solutions Amendment Passes 2019 State Budget

BOSTON – The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association amendment to support career technical education in the Marine Trades field has passed in next year’s 2019 state budget.

The amendment, which was sponsored by both Senator Donald Humason and Senator Julian Cyr would contribute to the recreational boating industry in Massachusetts by filling workforce demands of the industry.

Boating is currently facing a substantial workforce shortage in Massachusetts and on a national level. Here in Massachusetts there are hundreds if not thousands of jobs currently available and a projection of approximately 3,000 new jobs coming available over the next few years.

Established in 1964, the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association is the statewide, representative body for over 1,000 marine trades businesses in the Commonwealth that employ over 11,000 men and women.
