U.S. Rep. Richard Hudsons four-day Jobs and Education tour, designed to help him determine the cause for what Hudson says is a broken job training system, will make three stops in the Charlotte area Thursday.
Hudson, a Republican elected to the 8th District seat in November, is meeting this week at community colleges with students, teachers and school administrators. He says there are 3.6 million job vacancies in the United States and a dearth of trained workers for those positions.
The meetings are open to the public.
Hudson started Monday with two stops in Richmond County. On Tuesday, he was in Rowan, Randolph and Davidson counties. Wednesdays stops were in Stanly and Montgomery counties.
Here is his schedule for Thursday, the final day of the tour:
Cabarrus County: 9:30-11 a.m., Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (Cabarrus campus), 1531 Trinity Church Road, Concord.
Union County: Noon-1:30 p.m., South Piedmont Community College (Union campus), 4209 Old Charlotte Highway, Monroe.
Anson County: 2:30-4 p.m., South Piedmont Community College (Anson campus), 129 Leadbetter Street, Polkton.
