Earlier this week, former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Intertech Plastics, the largest custom injection molding manufacturer in Colorado. Clinton met with local business and non-profit leaders, as well as, several current and former trainees from Intertech's workforce development programs to highlight the benefits for businesses providing training, mentoring and hiring initiatives to young people. Clinton also spoke with employees on the factory floor about their workforce experiences and their career pathways through their training initiatives.
Clinton is prioritizing youth employment as one of the key issues for her work at the Clinton Foundation, and believes that business-led initiatives will play a critical role in addressing this important economic challenge. The Clinton Foundation is working closely with businesses and leading nonprofits, economists, and advocates across the country to identify and scale effective ways for companies to address their core business needs through engaging our nation's opportunity youth.
