County Workforce Comes Under Fire During Candidates Forum

June 18th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

For years those running or serving in elected office in Allegany County have spoken in glowing terms about the quality of the local workforce- however that theme appears to be changing . Several republican candidates vying for election in next Tuesday’s primary presented a different image Monday night. During a candidates forum,  those running for the House 1C seat and for county commissioner say a large percentage of county’s workforce today is not skilled, not adequately educated and not even capable of passing a drug test or showing up for work. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Stu Czapski tells WCBC News that it has become a growing concern, however it is not a problem that is unique to Allegany County.
