Recently, we caught up with TJ Lint, a laborer with McAninch who has been on the job since June 1.
Lint’s path to McAninch came in what many might consider an untraditional way. A former football player, Lint was a four-year letter winner playing wide receiver at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake.
Iowa has jobs. What we need is the interest of middle school and high school students to be open to pursuing skilled job opportunities. Over the course of two weeks in May, I chauffeured a $75,000 heavy-equipment simulator to schools in the Des Moines metro area with the goal of bringing “the jobs” to students.
