State Sen. Capri Cafaro sponsors training bill



Published: Tue, February 26, 2013 @ 3:04 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Companies that hire Ohioans trained for oil and gas industry jobs through state-backed programs would have to employ those workers for at least three years, under legislation introduced in the Ohio Senate.

Sen. Capri Cafaro of Liberty, D-32nd, said Senate Bill 12 would ensure residents benefit from eastern Ohio’s growing oil fields and the resulting new jobs.

“I’m very pleased to see that there’s a lot of discussion about work force development in this general assembly,” Cafaro told members of the Senate’s Workforce and Economic Development Committee. “I do hope that we really focus on the oil and gas components of our economy.”

Being forced to hire a worker for three years doesn't exactly sound like an incentive to a prospective employer. Why is that even necessary? This sounds like more empty legislation to get ones name in the paper. When will people realize Cafaro is a joke? If I had her families connections I could get into office without actually being elected too!

Please stop re-electing her!!!
