Texas Workforce Commissioner Andres Alcantar came to the valley Wednesday to address the economic crisis and high unemployment rate.
Action 4 News caught up with him at the Workforce Solutions Office in McAllen.
Commissioner Alcantar met with other leaders to brainstorm on how to turn things around and strive for a more competitive and marketable workforce.
"There's still plenty of jobs out there for anybody who wants to work," explained Jason Moreno with Workforce Solutions. "They may not be the highest or the best paying job, but there's work available and we're trying to help folks understand how to find those jobs, where to find them and what they need to do to land a good job."
