Minority Apprenticeship Program Hopes to Jumpstart 80 Jersey City Construction Careers

submit to reddit  

The New Jersey Laborers Union and the Jersey City Employment and Training Program (JCETP) are looking to place 80 Jersey City residents into the fall class of a program they hope will increase the number of minorities in the construction industry.  Those accepted into the program will receive two weeks of classroom training in Jamesburg before starting a two-year apprenticeship with the Laborers.  

Jersey City developers Kushner Real Estate and Mack-Cali will employ the workers throughout the apprenticeship and they will earn union wages.  

According Jim McGreevey, former New Jersey Governor and current Executive Director of JCETP, “It’s trying to link Jersey City residents to jobs that have a long-term shelf life, so it’s not for six weeks or six months, but for the potential of building a career.”
