In Pennsylvania, Training

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “Industry, government need to invest in job training“:

In a building that once housed the boiler and machine shops of a Duquesne steel mill shut down a quarter century ago, U.S. Steel Corp. is training workers for a career in a modern mill.

“The training is much more extensive and more high-tech, and there is a lot more done (training) before a person ever steps onto the plant floor,” said Lisa Roudabush, general manager of U.S. Steel’s Mon Valley Works, which includes the Edgar Thomson Plant in Braddock, Irvin Plant in West Mifflin and the Clairton Coke Works.

Others interviewed are Debra Brinney, training manager; Dave Nickle of Uniontown, a maintenance worker and mechanic; Lee Taddonio, president of the SMC Business Councils in Churchill; and Daniel A. Krinock, president of Pace Industries Inc. Airo Division.
