Jobs Corps center to serve state set for groundbreaking today
The political leaders, however, appear to be ready to bury the hatchet at the groundbreaking Tuesday. The ceremony "represents a culmination of years of bipartisan work to build the Job Corps Center which will provide young people with job training resources and education," a congressional press release states.
Mayor Gatsas said the project could bring both revenue to the city and help struggling young people. "It certainly is going to create an awful lot of opportunities to students who may not be headed to college, but to the workforce," Gatsas said.
"If we got the agreement, we could have put people in New Hampshire to work on the project. We could have made sure there was training, safety standards, apprenticeships," said union President Mark MacKenzie. "This could've been a premiere project for doing those kinds of things. What we ended up with was more of the same (for New Hampshire)."
