Ironworkers Local 433,

“BuildLACCD gave me an opportunity when I didn't have many options to choose from. My life has been through many ups and downs, from drug abuse to working odd jobs as a dishwasher at restaurants, however I'm now on a much better path! With the help of BuildLACCD’s Local Worker Hire Program and the skills that I have received at LATTC’s Welding program, I am very proud to say that I was able to join the Ironworkers Local 433. This was a very big decision to make because I knew that it was tough work but today I'm willing to do to it so that I could live comfortably and be able to help my family.”
