College Republicans support Ron’s work connecting folks with good jobs

The College Republicans of UW-Madison support Ron’s work with Pastor Jerome Smith in Milwaukee connecting folks with good jobs.

From the Badger Herald:

One way of dealing with poverty at its core is through job creation. The Joseph Project, based out of Milwaukee, is a program aimed at decreasing unemployment. Led by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, and Elder Jerome Smith Sr., a pastor from the Greater Praise Church of God in Christ, the Joseph Project is a job-training program. Potential employers, facilitated by Johnson, are connected with citizens who are serious about obtaining a job. The participants are then taught the skills necessary to attain the jobs available.

After their week-long session is over, the employers are then reconnected with the participants and interview them for potential jobs. The project has found full-time employment for citizens who would have never dreamed of working where they are today.
