Governor’s Weekly Message: Promoting Job Growth by Supporting Business Development

Wilmington, DE – As a guest host for the Governor’s weekly message, Delaware Economic Development Office Director Bernice Whaley highlights ongoing efforts to promote job growth and support business development in the First State.

“Since the financial collapse seven years ago, middle class jobs have changed drastically. Industries that fueled middle class jobs, no longer had the ability to support our middle class in a sustainable way,” said Whaley. “We have fought back from these losses by recognizing that in our transformed economy, good jobs look different and require a higher level of skills than they did in the past. By continuing to support businesses across many industries to ensure we are generating high quality opportunities, we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”
