Rep. Mike Harris, R-Waterford, this week helped organize a tour of a Clarkston area business for high school students interested in skilled trades.
A Clarkston High School class toured Northern Concrete Pipe Inc., learning about how precast concrete products are manufactured.
“Michigan faces a severe skilled trades worker shortage – and it must be addressed,” Harris said. “Tours like this are just one example of how we can help kids explore future career opportunities that will benefit their families and the local economy for years to come.”
Harris also supports Going PRO and other programs that help develop skilled workers and create economic opportunities across Michigan.
“Dark days are ahead for Michiganders under these backwards new laws that will prematurely ditch reliable natural gas power plants and require vastly more wind and solar,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
“Scheduling special elections on irregular dates will cost local governments in Metro Detroit, and the chaos of overlapping voting periods will heap burdens on local clerks, the area residents who work the polls, and voters,” Harris said.
“Carrying out the will of the voters to finally make elected officials reveal their personal finances was the Legislature’s number one job this year, and that’s why my Republican colleagues and I rolled out a real transparency plan months ago,” said Harris, who serves on the House Ethics and Oversight Committee.
