DeLauro, Drew, Lesser To Publicize Importance Of Education For Commerce: At Vinal Tomorrow

From the office of Rosa DeLauro, who represents our city in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Tomorrow Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) will tour Vinal Technical High School and hold a roundtable on the need to train Connecticut’s workforce for the high skill, high paying jobs critical to Connecticut’s economy.

Thursday, January 23, 11AM, Vinal Technical High School, 60 Daniels Street.

Vinal Technical High School’s manufacturing and maintenance training program was developed in partnership with local manufacturers. Some of those manufacturers have hired Vinal graduates and will be in attendance tomorrow. This is part of a series of events focused on what Congress should do to increase Americans’—and Connecticut’s—pay. Greater investment in job training and vocational education are a key part to ensuring Americans can compete for skilled manufacturing jobs that pay a good wage.

Also appearing will be Mayor Dan Drew, State Rep Matt Lesser, President of Pegasus Manufacturing Chris DePentima, and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce and Vinal Technical High School.
