New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu joined President Trump at the White House Thursday, to help share ideas on getting more Americans hired.

Gov. Sununu joined a bipartisan group of governors to discuss how to clear any obstacles standing in the way of true economic mobility for workers, advisor Ivanka Trump was also on hand.

Sununu also referenced the opioid crisis facing the Granite State.

“We created a program that came out when I ran a resort in my previous life. We created something called Recovery friendly workplaces where again if you want someone to be in recovery there’s a big picture there isn’t just a 28-day treatment. Goodbye and good luck. You need employment. You need family you need community allowing and training the private sector to be quote recovery friendly and through Secretary Costa’s Grant. We’ve been growing that program we have tens of thousands of people in New Hampshire now working for recovery from the workplace which dovetails right into what we’re also talking about which justice as giving people a second chance is allowing folks when they come out to have a job waiting for them,” Sununu said.

The Republican Governor was also at a White House event, featuring reality star Kim Kardashian West, called Second Chance Hiring. She announced the creation of a new ride-sharing partnership that will give former prisoners gift cards to help them get to and from job interviews, work and family events.
