Job Corp Forest Service


I wish everyone that reads this could spend a day at one of these forest service job corp centers and see first hand these young men and women learning a trade. Not just wildland fire, which is actually a small part of these centers. Plumbers, electricians, carpenters, admin and I am just scratching the surface. Offering young men and women an opportunity to learn a trade and start a career.

Just terrible.

House votes to stop the administrations attempt to dismantle technical job training including a recruitment base for future Wildland Firefighters.

A letter from the National Association of Home Builders backing the amendment was included in the official record.

All Democrats voted in favor; Republicans voted 81 for and 109 against. The legislation is attached to is a major bill, the “Fiscal Year 2020 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Legislative Branch, Defense, State, Foreign Operations, and Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act”, [H.R. 2740].
