Bank of Labor took its pro-worker, pro-union message to DC high school students last week when it participated in McKinley Technology High School’s Career Day on April 6. “This was the perfect place for us to not only talk with students about careers and career paths in general, but to also talk specifically about the great opportunities that might be right for them with a union,” said Senior Vice President of Labor Market Development Bridget Martin. “Many students didn’t know about unions, apprenticeship programs and other great benefits that might help them in their careers.” The event provided students with the opportunity to interact with professionals, learn about career options, challenges and paths to success. “The students are motivated young leaders, and it’s inspiring to hear from them directly,” said Martin. This was the first time Bank of Labor -- the labor majority-owned and -operated bank --has participated in a student career event in the DC-area but it plans to participate in more in the future.
