The newest episode of LaborPress’ Blue Collar Buzz features wide-ranging discussions with SEIU Local 246 President Joe
Colangelo, Carpenters Union Training Director Walter Warzecha, and Workers Compensation Attorney Jordan Ziegler.
*Joe Colangelo’s members are tasked with repairing and maintaining the City of New York’s mechanized fleet of vehicles — that’s everything from garbage trucks to police cars. Colangelo talks candidly about the increasing pressures being put on workers to keep the city moving.
*Walter Warzecha heads of one of the most sought after apprenticeship programs in the City of New York. Hundreds of working men and women hoping for a ticket to the middle-class routinely camp outside Carpenters HQ at 395 Hudson Street whenever apprentice slots are opened. This week, Blue Collar Buzz takes an inside look at that process.
*Jordan Ziegler, in addition to being a highly effective litigator on the behalf of working men & women, he’s also an dedicated educator specializing in helping workers understand the increasingly complex world of Workers Comp — and how to apply for vital benefits should they get hurt on the job.
