The lieutenant governor of Ohio, Jon Husted, visited Monti Incorporated recently to announce the launch of the Good Jobs Challenge. Monti Incorporated is excited to announce its partnership with the Good Jobs Challenge to provide excellent career opportunities for individuals re-entering the workforce, as well as students who are interested in a career in manufacturing.
What is the Good Jobs Challenge?
The Good Jobs Challenge is a two-plus years initiative working with the Ohio Manufacturing Association to provide skilled positions in advanced manufacturing here in Cincinnati. Ohio manufacturing companies have the resources to invest in technology and opportunities for career advancement. They are looking for people who have the desire to take on a challenge, are reliable, and want a successful career with great pay.
The Good Jobs Challenge was created for both high school students starting their careers and for those individuals seeking to re-enter the workforce, providing introductory training in advanced manufacturing. This program will expand the manufacturing talent pool, support the economic footprint through manufacturing, and transform the career paths of those who participate. Not only does manufacturing offer well-paying jobs and the ability to move in a career path, but it also gives educational opportunities to those who want to earn a certificate, associate, undergraduate, or master’s degree. Working in the manufacturing industry opens many doors for furthering education and careers.
Some of the manufacturers participating in the program will start to pay at $23/hour, with the potential to make $86,000/year in two years.
