USC Village local employment featured on KCRW

KCRW-FM featured USC Village in a story about construction projects creating economic opportunities for Los Angeles locals. The story noted that more than a quarter of the 4,000 construction jobs at USC Village are expected to be filled by local residents. USC has set a goal of hiring 30 percent of the workforce for the $650 million project from low-income, local areas, with an emphasis on hiring people from within a 2-mile radius of USC. The story included a video compilation of flyovers of USC Village’s construction site as well as a video story featuring a construction worker who is helping to build USC Village.
