Stamper, II invited residents from the 15th Aldermanic District and from other city neighborhoods to participate in a Community Jobs and Resources event held at North Division High School, 1011 W. Center Street on Monday, September 22, 2014. The event – co-sponsored by Alderman Stamper and WRTP/BIG STEP – provided information on various career opportunities in the construction skilled trades on the Northwestern Mutual Life construction project. Northwestern Mutual will begin building a $450 million headquarters in downtown Milwaukee this fall. This project will require many skilled construction workers over the next five years. WRTP/BIG STEP provides training and access to trade apprenticeship opportunities necessary to start a career in construction. Other services were provided to address barriers to employment, such as lack of a driver’s license, GED, and other assistance. More than 100 individuals attended the Jobs and Resources event.
