“I've been able to bless my family. Bills will be paid. It helps … support the struggles that we have. I don't know where I would be without this program,” said Garrett Bloomquist, a production trainer at Deseret Manufacturing.
Garrett is one of dozens of employees supported by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' manufacturing and training facilities, which are looking for a few good workers, with no experience required. Associates get paid while they learn new job skills and establish a work history at the Humanitarian Center and nearby Deseret Manufacturing in Salt Lake City, Utah.
At the Humanitarian Center associates can learn English while receiving job training.
