Labor United Inc. is now expanding work; requires funding for goal of hiring five educators to speak to students in grades 8 - 12 regarding excellent alternative career pathways in the trades through labor's "Earn as You Learn" Apprenticeships and/or Metropolitan Community College's new Construction Trades program, through partnership agreements. This will reduce an increasing number of our greater Omaha area's "disconnect youth" --10,425 identified by UWM, provide good optional careers and meet shortage of educated, highly-skilled tradesperson for our growing area.
