State Representative Lisa Beck (D-Lakes of the Four Seasons) will host a NWI Building Trades Fair today, November 21, 2019 at the Plumbers Local 210, 2901 E. 83rd Place, Merrillville, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. “The main purpose if this event is to help connect folks who are skilled and experienced plumbers, electricians and carpenters with safe working conditions, a living-wage, and a defined retirement package,” said Beck. “Part of my job as a state representative is to help connect people with resources in their community. There are plenty of resources in Northwest Indiana to help men and women working in trades succeed and prosper in their field,” she continued. “A job is what you are working for today, a career is for tomorrow. I want to help Hoosiers working in trades build a career that will set themselves and their families up for long-term success.” Construction Advancement Foundation, WorkOne, and a local veteran contractor, Tonn and Blank, are partnering with Beck for this event.
