State, National Leaders Team Up To Create Jobs In Rural Areas
The Florida Farm Bureau is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to find ways to create jobs in rural areas.
At the Farm Bureau state office in Gainesville, state and national leaders held a public forum on job creation. They looked at ways to create jobs by rebuilding infrastructure, supporting small businesses, and preparing workers for 21st century jobs.
"We need to continue the dialogue to work together with our local communities within the agriculture community then our local small towns to stimulate conversations to regenerate our economy," Executive Director Tim Manning said.
