ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- Many people today, including college students, are struggling to find jobs. One sector struggling to actually fill all of the open positions is the construction industry.

Scott Mosby, the president of Mosby Building Arts, spoke with Fox 2 this morning about an initiative to get people involved in trade professions.

The initiative is called "Tradeswork", and emphasizes awareness, education and participation in skilled building trades with job postings and training opportunities in the Metro St. Louis area.
