A year ago, she was living in a homeless shelter in Detroit and working minimum wage jobs. Her last check at her old job was just $40 because she worked so few hours. Now, she's wearing a welder's helmet covered in Star Wars stickers — with a sticker of Jimmy Hendrix on the inside — at her full-time job at The Armored Group factory in Dearborn Heights. "This is one of the best jobs I've ever had income wise," said Lakes, 29, who often worked at retail stores or fast food joints. Lakes took an intensive training program offered through Women Who Weld, a Detroit-based nonprofit, passed her weld test in October 2018 and soon snagged the welding job at the small factory, which makes armored vehicles for law enforcement, personal protection and … [Read more...] about Welding program for women sparks more than a way to pay bills
