Monday July, 16th – Excitement filled the air at PSEG yesterday morning as the 3rd Ready2Work class celebrated the beginning of their careers in Connecticut’s construction trades. For participants, the Ready2Work program is the first step in obtaining a high-paying union apprenticeship. This class, sponsored by Ferreira Construction, is comprised of 14 individuals, 11 of which are Bridgeport residents and represent neighborhoods within the city such as Black Rock, North End, East Side, West End and East End. Participants represent a multitude of various demographics including women, veterans, African Americans and Latinos.
