Not all infrastructure construction projects are the same. Here is a look at how there…
Sounds like a great news story doesn’t it. Yet that title is actually true, heavy equipment will be needed to drag our economy out of the current recession. How do I know it’s true? The most powerful person on the country said so and he is putting your tax dollars in to make the point.
Back in December 2008, President Obama made an announcement that should have every heavy equipment operator checking their licenses, qualifications and any other work requirements including safety clothing.
President Obama promised to put together the largest public works construction program ever seen to revive the economy. His program includes infrastructure projects that repair roads and bridges, renovations in schools, sewer systems, mass transit, electric grids, dams and other utilities.
His plan will create millions of jobs by investing the single largest amount in national infrastructure projects since the creation of the interstate highway system more than 50 years ago. That is a lot of money and a large chunk of that will need to go into the employment of heavy equipment operators. A lot of these projects will require highly experiences operators – that could be great news for younger operators coming into the employment market.
Experienced heavy equipment operators will be attracted to the higher wages on offer for many of these projects. Under normal circumstances, when there is a huge attraction to particular areas for skilled workers, there is a vacuum left on a local level. This is were freshly trained recruits can step in to fill the vacuum and gain valuable skills locally.
If you are interested in a career as a heavy equipment operator then now may be the time to start your training. President Obama made it clear that this project was to be one of the first to be implemented by the new government.
