Career Opportunities Waiting for Applicants

Right now, on the other side of town, there are several thousand construction hands working in the Chevron refinery.  They’re making good money with benefits.  This is a good thing.

What should bother us, though, is to learn how many hundreds of these hands have that look about them that tells us they’re not from Richmond.

Why is this, you might ask.  Why?  Because even though this is the heart of unionized construction workers, we don’t have enough qualified local construction workers to man these jobs.  So the local unions have to put out the call for travel card hands to man the jobs.

And before anyone here jumps up and tries to sell us on the idea that we have plenty of qualified hands here in Richmond, it’s simply not accurate.

In just a few weeks, though, the Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 342 is hosting sign-ups for their apprentice program where 18 year olds fresh out of high school—having absolutely zero construction skills—can get into a state approved apprentice program where they can be dispatched out to these jobs.

They’ll start out earning more than $22 per hour with 5+% increases every six months for the full five years of their apprenticeship. 

PLUS, after they complete their probationary period, they’ll earn an additional $41+ per hour in pension and health care plans.

What they’re offering aren’t jobs—they’re careers.

There are conditions, though.  Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or a GED, be physically capable of performing heavy construction and they have to pass routine drug tests.  That means that applicants with their medical marijuana cards can leave those at home because these places seem to think that they shouldn’t allow people near a multi billion dollar complex while they’re on drugs.

The only thing holding people back is their failure to step forward and take what’s being offered.

    Hello,

    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it’s been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn’t give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man’s wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I’m physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can’t get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.

    My name is Mary Silva, I just split up with my boyfriend of 7 years. We were great together, completely in love and talked about marriage and growing old together, we traveled the world together, everyone knows us as a perfect couple, we never fought always laughed together… however the last 2 years have been very difficult. We have been living together for over 5 years but the last 2 years have been a stressful living situation as I had to take in a friend that was in need. I also started my own business which kept me extremely busy. I am completely devastated, hurt, lost and just want him back. I love him completely. We had a few discussions before he left about trying to work things out, and he felt I took him for granted…I had stopped treating him with appreciation and love. I agreed that I have to be more romantic and be an equal partner in the relationship. Over the course of the following days I showed him love and appreciation, treated him like I had done in the past however he still wanted out. he said he needed time and space to figure out what he wants. I told him I would not give up on us but I would give him space that he wanted. he said he still loved me and care a lot about me but was just hurting.i was totally down because i need my man back one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in two days after his spell my man who told me he needed space, call me and come back home to me i must say today we are happily married not only married but have two lovely kids all thanks to Dr happy a father and a real spell caster.
