Angelique completed Climb's Pipefitting training.

“This is the most money I’ve ever made in my entire life and my first steady job.”

“My job placement with the local Plumbers and Pipefitters Union began with a construction company building air conditioning units for servers at a Microsoft facility, and now I’m an apprentice with the union and on track to become a Journeywoman! This is the most money I’ve ever made in my entire life and my first steady job. I didn’t work before Climb, other than waitressing in high school, but had to find a job when my partner went to prison. With my wages, I’ve been able to move out of my parents’ house and get my own car. The kids now have their own rooms and a place they know is theirs. It feels great to be able to give them what they need.”
