Maine needs a long-term strategic plan for growing foundational jobs that helps us build a brighter economic future.
Maine needs a plan to win the competition for jobs if we are going to grow our economy.
Any successful strategic plan for a brighter economic future for Maine should include certain key elements.
Over the past several decades, Maine’s state government and Legislature have often enacted policies in isolation.
Maine has lacked a forward-thinking, strategic plan to place itself at the forefront of one or more economic industries.
An effective strategic plan should prioritize foundational jobs and getting working people to work in the state, not move away.
Foundational jobs attract young workers, stimulate the economy, and provide job opportunities for both business owners and front-line workers.
In recent years, Maine has become a challenging place for young people to set down, plant roots, or pursue long-term professional careers.
A strong strategic plan can help right the ship and lead Maine to a prosperous, brighter economic future for everyone involved.
