Governor Gary Herbert joined with Prosperity 2020 business and education partners Thursday to launch a partnership that will establish the greater Salt Lake area as a top ten center for technology jobs and businesses.

“Great jobs and businesses start with well educated workers,” the governor said. “By  bringing industry and education together we start recruiting tomorrow’s scientists in today’s classrooms. Utah technology jobs pay 57 percent more than the state’s average wage. This improves individual lives and the economy.”
