Duggan for Detroit
Duggan has touted Detroit At Work as the “centerpiece” of his approach to fighting joblessness in the city. His administration launched the program in February and has so far trained and graduated 500 residents with the majority of them landing full-time jobs. The training fields are in health care, information technology, construction and transportation, retail and hospitality, and manufacturing. Students go through a six- to seven-week training program and have the opportunity to interview for partnering companies with job openings.
