KNX News, Radio Segment
KNX News interviewed LCW Associate Alex Volberding on November 8 on the recent passing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The segment mentioned the bill was passed with the hope of boosting job openings in low-income communities and helping marginalized communities earn a pathway to the middle class through careers in the building and construction trades. “There’s a massive infusion of resources into communities across the country,” said Volberding. “One of the things this bill does is establish project owners to do local hiring and establish a preference for individuals in the communities where the development or project is being constructed.” He added that historically many of the building and construction trades have not provided equal opportunities to women or people of color.
