GA Dept. of Labor commissioner speaks with Columbus youth about the workforce

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - The Georgia Department of Labor commissioner visited Columbus Wednesday and spoke youth about the workforce.

Commissioner Mark Butler gave a group of boys words of encouragement and helpful tips on how to find jobs.

"Let them know that you know things aren't over. Matter of fact, they've got a bright future ahead of them and we want to be adults that are around them that are giving that good advice, encouraging them and showing that there is a good path to follow," said Butler.

The young men also heard from a retired soldier who gave them more life advice and encouragement.
