Partnership aims to match workers with construction jobs on Northwestern Mutual project
MILWAUKEE -- City leaders are teaming up with Northwestern Mutual to help match workers with hundreds of new construction jobs made available through the company's upcoming project.
Northwestern Mutual is building a new tower in downtown Milwaukee and the project is expected to create nearly 1,000 construction jobs. The Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership says it will provide training and access to trade apprenticeship opportunities for workers to begin a career in construction and find a job on the project.
Alderman Russell Stamper II is hosting a meeting with WRTP from 6 to 8 p.m. September 22 at North Division High School.
In addition to job opportunities on the project, the meeting will also address barriers to employment, such as lack of a driver's license, GED, and other assistance.
