Rust Belt Rundown

Episode 41 featuring Michelle Rose of the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Workforce Development Board

In this episode, we are joined by the Executive Director of the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Workforce Development BoardMichelle Rose. Listen in as Michelle shares her experience at the federal level with the U.S. Department of Labor and her return to Cleveland in this new era of leadership in our city as an appointee of Mayor Justin Bibb.

Michelle offers us insight on the newfound buying power that workers have and what that means for employers and businesses, discusses overcoming barriers to work and training and how that relates to the transportation paradox, and what the shift to remote work means for Downtown Cleveland.

She names Rasika Indian Restaurant as her favorite food spot from her time in D.C. and as a proud Miami University alumna, she recommends Skipper’s chicken salad sandwich with waffle fries and a beer tower if you ever find yourself in Oxford.
