LINXS, the selected developer for the Automated People Mover (APM), is excited to bring hundreds of high-paying career jobs to Los Angeles, as well as to connect local communities with pre-apprenticeship and career training opportunities to facilitate entry into the construction trades.
LINXS will invest more than $1,000,000 to ensure career pathways are created for traditionally underrepresented individuals, including but not limited to, women, former foster youth, individuals in re-entry and transitioning out of gang involvement, and persons with disabilities. HireLAX, LAWA’s Apprenticeship Readiness Program, will be a key partner in this effort, as will other programs offered by the Los Angeles Orange County Building and Construction Trades Council in addition to other local workforce development programs.
LINXS is also committed to creating lasting community impact through local contracting opportunities, mentoring, and other training initiatives for Los Angeles small businesses. LINXS has already committed to invest more than $550 million in subcontracts to the Los Angeles’ local, small and disabled veteran business community. That investment will continue to grow throughout the project.
Other priorities include supporting the next generation of workers, leaders, and entrepreneurs. LINXS will award 300 scholarships to young Angelinos through local community organizations over the next six years.
