“So what’s a good job look like here in the twenty first century? For some people, it means working in an office. For other people, it means building the office that people work in. I don’t know what kind of person you are, but I can tell you this: here in Michigan, things are being built all around us, every day, even as we speak. Which means if you’re kind of person who likes to work with your brain, as well as your hands, opportunities are all around us, every day.” - Mike Rowe

“The exciting thing about Construction in Michigan is really all of the different opportunities – anywhere from the new Detroit Red Wings Stadium all the way down to soccer fields, high schools, different hospitals that are being built – there’s just a big variety in construction.” – Operating Engineers 324 Training Director Lee Graham
