Byline Breakdown Excerpt: Efforts to Fill Jobs in the Valley

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and Eastgate Regional Council of Governments are embarking on a plan to repopulate the Mahoning Valley.

It’s an effort to ensure there are enough workers to fill the high-skill jobs that currently exist as well as jobs that will be created over the next several years.

Officials point to a three-pronged approach: retain young people, return people who have left and receive immigrants and refugees.
