City of Detroit launching construction jobs training program

- Buildings like the new Little Caesars Arena are forever changing the skyline of Detroit.

The City of Detroit is launching a new program to train Detroiters for careers in construction and skilled trades.

The initiative will train Detroiters in the fundamental, math, reading and work readiness skills connected to jobs in the construction industry. The program is being developed and recruited by Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation (DESC), the City of Detroit's workforce agency.

Jose Reyes, interim president and CEO of Detroit Employment Solutions, and Ric Preuss, business representative from IBEW Local 58 join us on Live at Eleven to tell us more about the program. You can learn more by watching their interview in the video player above.
