Unveiling Ohio’s EV Workforce Strategy

In Youngstown this week, OMA staff joined Lt. Gov. Jon Husted to announce Ohio’s Electric Vehicle Workforce Strategy.

In this statement, OMA President Ryan Augsburger said the strategy will benefit all Ohio manufacturers. Read more in coverage from Hannah News Service, The Vindicator (Youngstown), and the Dayton Daily News. 6/13/2023
