LAX Workers Train for New Food and New Jobs

December 18, 2012

Fifty-two laid-off HMS Host workers at Los Angeles International Airport are participating in a free eight-week culinary training thanks to UNITE HERE Local 11 and a workforce training grant from the City of Los Angeles.

As a part of the LAX Airport modernization plan, restaurants like Chili's and Burger King will be replaced with local eateries, offering fresh, made-from-scratch fare. The new restaurants will require a well-trained culinary staff, so who better to fill the new jobs than the laid-off HMS Host employees represented by Local 11?

Read the LA Times coverage of the program.
