(本报实习记者戴斯梦倍投方案图片顿报导) 倍投方案图片顿律师界组成的委员会,昨(七月三十)日办筹款会,希望鼓动更多人捐款,投票,支持波市首名华裔市议员吴弭当选连任。
昨日的筹款,造势会,格调颇高,在明兹利文(Mintz Levin)律师楼,由曾任联邦参议员的柯文谋(Mo Cowan),曾任麻州电信局(?Massachusetts Department of?Telecommunications) 局长的陈光耀(Geoffrey Why)担任主持人,包括统筹人之一的李超荣在内,共有五十多人出席。
吴弭今年再度获得“艾米莉名单(Emily's List)”支持。昨日她在金融大厦一号38楼的明兹利文律师楼办公室里,轻声细语,重述自己从政缘由,瞻望未来将关注的四个重点。
吴弭在22岁那年,从倍投方案图片顿辞去高薪工作,回芝加哥照顾生病了的母亲,为谋生技,打算开餐馆,没想到向政府申请各种证件,许可时,手续繁杂,时间冗长的让人心力交瘁。这个人经历,让她充分体会到,小企业的创业艰辛,也因此後来进倍投方案图片顿市府做市长顾问,以及其後当选波市议员,都竭力推动简化手续,规范表格。
今年一旦当选连任,她将在未来任期内关注四个重点,包括精神疾病患者的医疗,新生婴儿家长在带薪假後的选择,让学生更公平的获取教育资源,不再受居住地区域划分限制,帮助面对房价高压力的年轻人在倍投方案图片顿安家立业等。
昨日出席活动的四,五十人,有高中校长,商人,政治家等。
谈及倍投方案图片顿华处处可见支持她的海报时,吴弭双手合十表示,非常感激华埠给予的支持。当年她到倍投方案图片顿,华埠也是她第一个接触,了解的社区。在哈佛求学时,每个周末,她都到华埠当志工,为耆英入籍美国上课。她坦言,来自父母的东方教育和性格品质,已是她生命中的非常重要的一部分。
活动组织者之一,曾任联邦参议员的柯文谋(Mo Cowan)肯定弭的才能和品质,直言『她的才华和能力可以让她在别的领域过上更好的生活,但她投身了政治,努力改善这个社会。

麻州州长查理贝克(Charlie Baker)昨(七月三十)日和一百名参加麻州“青少年工作(YouthWorks)”项目的青少年们晤谈,藉以强调及早获得工作经验和长期职业发展成功之间的相互关系。
麻州今年约有4000名年纪在1421岁之间的青少年参加“青少年工作”项目,进入公家机构,私营企业或非牟利机构做暑期工。
“青少年工作“是由麻州政府资助,管理的半官方机构,代表麻州州长办公室的劳工及人力发展办公室办理服务。麻州州长查理贝克在早前签署的2016会计年度预算中,编列了1150万元给“青少年工作”办理下一年度暑期工项目,数额之高打破历年纪录。
麻州州长办公室表示,全美迄今只有麻州由州政府拨款,为低收入青少年办理准备就业,及早获取就业经验的项目。
2007年迄今,已有33,000名青少年曾藉由“青少年工作”获得工作经验。
查理贝克昨天和麻州劳工及人力发展卿朗纳沃克二世(Ronald Walker, II),倍投方案图片顿红袜队营运长山姆甘乃迪(Sam Kennedy),以及倍投方案图片顿警察局副局长William Gross等人,一起到麦特潘(Mattapan)参观了办理这项目的机构之一,倍投方案图片顿社区发展行动(ABCD)经营的邻里中心。
倍投方案图片顿警察局每年雇用大约60名青少年。
倍投方案图片顿社区发展行动(ABCD)和大约250个雇主合作,今年夏天为大约1,050名倍投方案图片顿青少年提供了暑期工机会。

根据调查,在上高中期间,每周工作20小时以上的学生,和那些不工作的学生相比,後来大学毕业的比率更高。那些有工作经验的青少年,在职业生涯後期的职位,一般也较高。


Governor Baker Highlights Record $11.5 Million for YouthWorks Summer Jobs Program
Program provides over 4,000 teenagers invaluable work experience in public, private, non-profit sectors

BOSTON –?Highlighting the importance of early work experience and its correlation to long-term career success, Gov. Charlie Baker today met with nearly 100 young people benefitting from the Commonwealth’s YouthWorks summer jobs program.

Approximately 4,000 teenagers across the Commonwealth are participating in the YouthWorks program this summer, which provides summer jobs in the public, non-profit and private sectors to lower-income young people ages 14 to 21.

YouthWorks is a state-funded program administered by Commonwealth Corporation – a quasi-public state agency – on behalf of the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. The Fiscal Year 2016 budget signed by Governor Baker earlier this month allocated $11.5 million to YouthWorks – the highest amount ever for the program – for next summer’s programming.

Massachusetts is one of the only states in the nation to invest in state-funded early work experiences and work-readiness programs for low-income young people.

Since 2007, more than 33,000 young people have been employed through YouthWorks.

Gov. Baker?on Thursday?visited a neighborhood center in Mattapan operated by Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) – one of the non-profit organizations that facilitates the YouthWorks jobs program.

“With YouthWorks, we are aligning what employers tell us they need in future workers with experience, education and skill-building programs,”?Governor Baker said. “We need to replicate what works and do more of it so young men and women can find a path that leads them to a job and ultimately a career.”?

Governor Baker was joined by Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Ronald Walker, II, and Boston Red Sox’s Chief Operating Officer Sam Kennedy, along with Boston Police Superintendent William Gross. The Boston Police Department employs approximately 60 teenagers every summer.?

“Companies tell us again and again they cannot find enough skilled workers to fill available jobs,”?Secretary Walker said. “By supporting young people in acquiring the skills they need to enter and be successful in the workforce, we’re also meeting the needs of businesses for a pipeline of skilled workers.”

“We are tremendously grateful to Governor Baker and our state legislators for their support of state funding for youth summer jobs, including expanded funding for next summer,”?said John Drew, president and chief executive officer of ABCD. “That increase is a critical step in serving the needs of thousands of Boston teens from low-income families who are eager to work, learn and succeed.”

ABCD, through its SummerWorks program, partnered with 250 employers to provide 1,050 Boston teens jobs this summer. The young people are working in museums, health centers, and day camps, among other places. The Boston Police Department employs young people every year, offering teenagers mentorship and class discussions in order to strengthen relationships between inner-city teens and police.

The rigors of the program were raised this year with new requirements aimed at ensuring teens leave with a plan to help them find their next job in the private sector. Young people who get jobs this summer must have a résumé, and a portfolio describing the skills they earned when they finish working.

They must also participate in “Signal Success,” a new hands-on work readiness education program overseen by Commonwealth Corporation.

Work experience is critically important for the long-term success of young people. Research shows teens who work have long-term gains in employment, future earnings, and educational outcomes.

Students who work up to 20 hours per week during high school are more likely to earn a bachelor’s degree than students who do not work, research shows. Teens with early work experience also tend to attain work in higher-level occupations later in life, and tend to have jobs with pension plans and employer-provided health insurance.
