Consider This: Minority hiring and the coming Boston construction boom

Download Audio

A construction boom is headed toward Boston, fueled by billions of dollars from the Biden Administration for new roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects.

Construction workers will be in high demand. That should mean more jobs for the growing ranks of minorities in the construction trades.

Burrell joined Consider This guest host Matt Baskin to discuss his findings.

This segment aired on February 10, 2022.
