The Milwaukee Bucks launched a new partnership to create a workforce development platform for family-supporting careers in the new arena district.
 
Every single trade is needed to build the new arena, including - welders, plumbers and crane operators.
 
"The development is not only going to be great because it's going to create a new living room for Milwaukee but it's also going to put people to work," said Senior Vice President Alex Larsy. "And with this new platform, we hope to bring people who haven't quite seen the construction industry or trade as a viable path for job security."
 
Kisha Bynum with North Cott says the Bucks commitment to help funnel local workers in Milwaukee can help eliminate unemployment rates in the city.
 
“I believe it will bring our crime rate down because no one is out trying to rob the next person of what they've worked so hard for," said Bynum. "They're actually working hard themselves."
 
The Milwaukee Bucks wants to exceed their requirement of hiring 40 percent of Milwaukee residents .
