Maryland’s Coming Bioscience Revolution
September 16, 2010
Fred Mason, President of the Maryland AFL-CIO, wrote the following op-ed published in The Bowie Star regarding the emergence of the life sciences industry in Maryland and its far-reaching economic benefits.
“The high-paying jobs that this industry creates aren’t just in science. Highly skilled construction workers are needed to build bioscience plants. Accountants are needed to balance the books. Electricians, plumbers and other skilled tradesmen — good union workers — are needed to keep these facilities running.”
