Fueling the Workforce of America
Earlier this week PSEG celebrated the graduation of students in its second Ready2Work class. On Monday, June 4th friends, family, teachers and local officials, such as Bridgeport’s Mayor Joe Ganim and five members of City Council, all gathered to show their support for students who are about to embark on a highly rewarding career in the construction industry.
PSEG’s Ready2work program was created to provide Bridgeport residents with the opportunity to gain access to well-paying careers in Connecticut’s construction industries. Ready2Work allows residents including minorities, women and veterans to train for a high paying apprenticeship at no cost. Ready2Work participants attend five classes over a 14-month period comprising classroom instruction hours along with hands-on training. The half-million-dollar private investment helps to build the construction industry’s workforce pipeline by creating opportunities for disadvantaged and low-skilled area residents.
PSEG is proud to help Bridgeport residents build a rewarding career that will help them provide for their families. We are #PSEGProud of our Ready2Work class and cannot wait to help another set of hardworking individuals! The next class starts on July 16th, don’t miss your opportunity!
