Munday wins Better Government Competition

The Pioneer Institute announced the winner of the 22nd annual Better Government Competition is Michael J. Munday, CEO of Arwood Machine Corporation, located in Newburyport.

His entry was entitled, “Manufacturing Revitalization,” a proposal to realign On-the-Job Training (OJT) programs to overcome hiring obstacles that often arise in traditional government-subsidized job training programs. If implemented, the plan would connect the unemployed to jobs and then provide them with the specific skills required to meet their host employers’ immediate needs. Current job training too often works in the opposite direction: unemployed job seekers go through training programs and then hope they find jobs that match the skills they’ve acquired. The former guarantees a fit between jobs and skills. The latter remains a guessing game in which job seekers hope they pick the right training program for the jobs that will be available three, six, nine months from now.
