Congressman Krishnamoorthi Announces Significant Investment In Hire360 Job Training Center
Congressman Krishnamoorthi recently celebrated securing $1 million dollars in funding for Hire 360, a skills-based training and business development center aimed at helping women and minorities enter the construction industry in the Chicago area. WBBM Radio noted Congressman Raja’s keen focus on the skills-based education that this center will help provide. The Congressman told reporters, “Two thirds of Americans don’t have a four year college degree, and for them we have neglected our post secondary education system for way too long — but that stops now.” Hire 360 is instrumental in the effort to train and develop employees in industries significantly affected by COVID-19, including the construction, manufacturing, and hospitality sectors. West Suburban Journal detailed the advantages of this Hire 360 center, which has multi-use conference and meeting space, working space for 37 trades, a playroom and parents center for working professionals, retail space for diverse suppliers, and more.
