PASTOR SHANE B SCOTT, to Host Virtual Carpenter’s Union Job Training Workshop.

Updated: Mar 28

LOS ANGELES, Investments are coming to South L.A. from “Build Back Better,” the Olympics, and other construction projects in the region. Many of these dollars have a local hire component.

In meetings with developers, contractors, and lenders, I have feedback that those job creators believe there is no qualified workforce in South Los Angeles.

Sr. Pastor Shane B. Scott, Senior Pastor of The Macedonia Baptist Church and Chair of the Board of Macedonia Community Development said, “I wish I could tell you I did not expect “The Establishment” was going to find a way to bamboozle us out of local hire opportunities. I cannot stand by and let this happen.”

Macedonia CDC has partnered with the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters and its “Brother’s Keeper” program to recruit, train, and prepare our local workforce. Email to get the link to the Zoom presentation on February 24th at 10:00 AM to learn more. We hope you or a member of your staff can join us.

The Macedonia Community Development Corporation was founded in 2015 by the Macedonia Baptist Church in Watts. Their mission is "To create and to implement creative, sustainable and transformative economic, community and housing development programs for the greater Watts community.” Likewise their vision is “Working together towards a prosperous future for the people of the greater Watts community.”
