With the Chinese wage rate increasing, American businesses are purchasing automation and returning jobs home. Automation can be a 5000 lb robot or a mobile app. Either way, these jobs require math proficiency, some sort of skilled trade - computer programming, electrician, machining, pipefitting, plumbing, machining etc and critical thinking. Automation Workz was created to expose parents and their teens to the new skills these jobs require.

Detroit Ghetto neighborhood
Detroit affluent neighborhood
Detroit Lost 1 MILLION unskilled Factory jobs in 20 years causing a massive lost of income, taxes and prosperity
Detroit Bankruptcy case is complete
New job skills require mastery in iSTEAM*
Sadly, many Detroiters have no idea what high demand skills to acquire as they have not been exposed to automation environments during middle and high school.
Cities are not just infrastructure and assets. Cities are people. Now that the Detroit bankruptcy case is over, assist us to change the income potential of Detroit residents and watch the City of Detroit transition from neighborhoods of blight and poverty to neighborhoods of neatness and affluence.
Talent tours are events that expose potential employees to corporate facilities, emerging technology, and/ or skills with the hope it inspires individuals to acquire those skills.
Detroit’s high poverty rate and blight is due to the fact many residents are struggling to find high paying jobs to replace the million jobs where they were laid off. Employers struggle to hire them, stating “Detroiters do not have the skills we need.” Uplift, Inc. has spent the past 2 years hosting community talent tours to expose inner city residents to automation skills. Our President believes talent tours are Detroit’s savior as the more automation skills residents have, the more jobs they will acquire and the more income they will generate. She discovered Detroiters are open to new ideas and will modify their mindsets to achieve those ideas, just like the young people in the video.
Give Detroit youth a fighting chance for a successful and prosperous future. Give them HOPE for a Job.
