Union Carpenters & Contractors ‘Are Building Futures And Careers’

Jasmine Kenchen, a Union Carpenter represented by Local 157 in New York City, has a nice Labor Perspective published in The New York Amsterdam News.  Says Kenchen: “When I started my journey to become a Union Carpenter four and a half years ago, I didn’t know how much I would come to love my job.  I have become a more confident and determined person.  I found community and mentorship.  I gained a deep sense of pride in my contributions to building a better New York for generations to come.  And I have security that those things cannot be taken away, because I know my Union and the Union Contractors we work with are committed to providing quality, sustainable careers for New Yorkers like me.”  It’s worth a read.
