SKILLED TRADES OPPORTUNITIES
Currently workers are coming in from out of state or, worse yet, the work that should be done here, is going elsewhere. More licensed trades means more work for everyone – not just in the trades, but for everyone both up and downstream of the work.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
The government has dedicated tax dollars to education that isn’t resulting in good jobs. We need to connect the trade school grads with waiting apprenticeships so that these graduates can get good paying stable careers that can support a family and help make better communities.
PENSIONS AT RISK
Workers are getting older and there aren’t enough young people to fill the rolls. The pension plans that people are counting on are underfunded and could be at risk. New, younger workers help keep pension plans strong and provide our retirees with the security and peace of mind they so richly deserve.
