Miguel from Chicago, IL

I want to provide for my kids as a welder. I need safety equipment to get jobs.

I'm studying to be a welder right now; I need steel toed boots, a welding helmet, and gloves. Employers will expect me to have them if they hire me.


I am 28 years old and have 2 kids that I changed my lifestyle for and want to be a positive role model by setting positive examples.

My goals are to have a career and get paid doing something I like doing, not just a job I have to do and barely get by.

I am currently studying to be a welder. I need steel toe boots, a welding helmet, and gloves. This will help me look for work after I finish, as employers expect you to bring all of that equipment to your job.

Meeting this need will help me because I would be able to have the proper equipment to open the doors to a successful future.
