Community Kitchen Pittsburgh feeds the need for second chances in hot job market

“People in our workforce development program are getting jobs before they complete the program. It’s crazy,” says Jennifer Flanagan, founder and executive director of the nonprofit. “They are offered signing bonuses, benefits after three months. It’s a totally different market right now. It’s hard on employees, but on the flip side, it’s great for our folks. They are making sustainable wages and benefits. Everyone is going to have a job before they graduate.”

Thank you, NEXTpittsburgh!

Given the labor shortage in the hospitality industry, the average starting wage for people coming out of the program has jumped to $17.41 an hour.

“The pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow. You just gotta believe in yourself. A lot of people just don’t believe they can accomplish certain things, so they bow out before they get the reward.

CKP gives you a fresh opportunity to start over. It’s a place to change fields if you feel like the direction you’re going in will lead to a dead end. It’s a place to make a family who will have your back through thick and thin.”
