Rebuild Illinois Will Move Ahead With Diverse Workforce

The state of Illinois wants to build a diverse workforce of union labor ahead of the massive Rebuild Illinois Capital Plan. State Senator Napoleon Harris says the Illinois Works program is designed to get a more diverse group of people into middle-class livelihoods by increasing opportunities to get union apprenticeships and making sure that contractors are using diverse workforces on state projects.



An advisory council will be overseeing the efforts to diversify the workforce. Appointed members will make sure that everything is being done to open up the opportunity to be a skilled tradesman to anyone who wants it.
