Getting hired in today’s tough job market requires advanced training or education. That can often mean that you’ll be faced with a mountain of student loan debt or owe service in the military before you are able to start earning a full income or building your financial security through savings.
Fortunately for you, the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades offers the opportunity to not only get the training you need for a successful professional and personal life, but also start earning pay and benefits now – on the job – while you receive your training. We call it Earn While You Learn!
And – as a member of the IUPAT working on the job, you not only receive skills and safety training, but you will also enjoy health insurance, a pension and other retirement savings opportunities like an annuity or 401k as well.
