– targets vulnerable young men
George Union has been a welder/ fabricator for over 41 years, a job he does with pure passion. Over the 41 years, Mr. Union has been dealt with his fair share of good and bad experiences, but he has never given up.
There’s an old saying that if you love what you do, it’s a pleasure to teach it, and it is this “old saying” which has helped Mr. Union become a well known name in the Sussex Street area. He owns and operates one of the largest wielding shops in Georgetown.
Mr. Union works on a contractual basis, building container tanks for various gas stations and other companies. His precision has helped him to become one of the well known welder/ fabricators in the country.
Moreover, he has been teaching his trade to a number of “academic under achievers” for a number of years.
Mr. Union told Kaieteur News that he has helped a number of vulnerable young men from the Albouystown, West and East Ruimveldt areas do something meaningful with their lives.
He explained that a number of his employees at the moment are young men who weren’t able to excel academically.
However, the young men have been able to successfully master the skill of welding.
“When they started, they never had any knowledge about the work….but through determination and hard work they have managed to come out successful,” Mr. Union said.
Some, he explained, have been certified and even started their own businesses.
“After seeing where they came from….to establishing their own business, I know I have done something credible,” he said.
Mr. Union informed that he continues to spread his knowledge throughout his community, since he believes that everyone should and must be given a fair chance at life.
