Guest Voice - Opinion

by Gov. Paul LePage 

As we look forward to the new year, one of the big challenges facing our state is growing our workforce and keeping our economy on a roll..

We are the oldest state. Record numbers of baby boomers are entering a well-deserved retirement. Employers need to replace these skilled workers.
