Boyle to host labor fair Feb. 11 at George Washington High School

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3 – State Rep. Kevin Boyle, D-Phila., will host a labor fair for George Washington High School students on Tuesday, Feb. 11 focused on informing students and their families about working in a trade and being a part of a union.

“Union laborers are an essential part of our workforce,” Boyle said. “Trades are vital to our society – as anyone who has ever needed a plumber, an electrician or a contractor can tell you. While our students are getting an excellent education in order to contribute their considerable skill to our communities, they also need to learn how to market themselves and understand what being a member of a union is all about. That’s what I hope to accomplish with this labor fair.”

The event, for George Washington High School students, will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the high school, 10175 Bustleton Ave., 19116.

Various unions will be in attendance to meet with students and their families and to answer any questions they may have.
