The board will include experts from the aerospace industry and the U.S. federal lab system who will provide input about what will be required in the work force for the state to support an economy in the growing industries. Four other local community colleges, including Antelope Valley Community College, are also participating with College of the Canyons in the grant project. Manufacturing companies began fleeing California in the early 1990s for more affordable places and fewer regulations on their industry. VALENCIA – A loss of manufacturing jobs in California over the last 15 years has left a black eye on the state’s economy, and now officials are looking for ways to heal it with opportunities in fields that are growing. Engineering and technology are emerging among the top industries in the state but will need a trained work force to support them, said Dena Maloney, dean of economic development at College of the Canyons. The community college has received a $75,000 grant to work on a national project to develop strategies to train workers for jobs in these fields and to help those companies bloom. The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Labor, which is distributing $195 million to 13 regional economies for additional labor market projects. “The only way to address the national challenge of global competition is by building strong regional economies,” said Emily Stover DeRocco, assistant secretary of labor for employment training. From 1990 to 2003, California lost about 400,000 manufacturing jobs. More than half of those positions were wiped out in the late 1990s and resulted in a $98 million loss of California-manufactured products, according to a study by the Keystone Group of Los Angeles, a collaboration of economic development executives.
