A quote from Erin:
“Want to know just one of the many reasons that Metro Community College is an incredible asset to not only Omaha, but to Nebraska?
Because Metro provides the opportunity for an education that will translate into a real job, with benefits, after graduation. And a certification from Metro means you can move up the ranks of that company faster and with more confidence. This means that we are growing Omaha and Nebraska’s skilled workforce, which attracts more jobs, which means lower unemployment for the communities in our city that have been locked out of education and jobs, which means (hopefully) that those jobs that pay minimum wage have to compete for better-trained workers with credentials, and so offer more competitive wages and benefits. Now I know all of the above is contingent on the idea that politicians will behave rationally, but Metro continues to exist and thrive on the idea that if you give someone the tools and support they need to succeed, they will. And Metro provides this education and training to everyone – including returning citizens. What would it look like in our community if we all tried to lift each other up regardless of our backgrounds?
It would probably look a lot like Metro.”
