GERMANY – Gov. Bruce Rauner’s trade mission to eastern Europe is underway.

Rauner is stopping in Germany and Poland to woo new companies to Illinois and create business partnerships. He is also going to learn more about how Germany’s school system works getting teenagers on a career track for hands on technical jobs that don’t always need a college education, or college debt.

“These young people make a good income they don’t go to a four-year type college, they go to technical training and careers and they start off in their teens and they are making good money and their workforce is better for it and their companies are more effective for it because we have a trained workforce in partnership with the business,” Rauner said. “They do this very well and we’ve got to do this in Illinois.”

It’s expected that Rauner will announce a few business ventures between Illinois and those European countries this week.
