O'Malley will be joined by state officials and local manufacturers to talk about the initiative on Tuesday in Baltimore. Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation Secretary Leonard Howie is scheduled to attend.
The EARN program is part of O'Malley's and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's goal to increase the number of Marylanders who receive skills training by 20 percent by the end of 2018.
