Ben Carson is currently the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Donald Trump’s administration. Ever since he became the HUD secretary, he showed that he is perfect for this job. His job is to make sure that everyone has access to fair and equal housing. Recently, he announced that contractors that work for HUD should hire local workers so they could help them by putting money in their economies. He also stated that his goal is to get people out of public housing and help them stand on their feet.
Ben Carson is the kind of person who generates confidence, he has a very strong character and is very intelligent, so he could do an impeccable job in any position for which he is qualified.
Carson is currently serving a secretary of the U.S. Housing and Urban Development department. While doing so, he found a welfare rule that’s been around for 50 years that will allow low-income Americans to work for HUD in their communities.
This means that contractors who work for HUD on construction projects will be required to hire local, low-income workers in their communities thereby helping those individuals and putting money into their local economies.
Carson stated this about his goal:
“It’s not how many people we can get into public housing. It’s how many people we can get out of it. We’re going to put much more emphasis on Section 3, which requires HUD builders to use low-income residents as employees during the construction of these various developments and in the redevelopment of places.”
He went on to say that we have been ignoring a rule that’s actually helpful:
“It’s largely ignored right now. We’re going to change that by emphasizing it in a different way and incentivizing people to use it. Most major construction and reconstruction projects are known about well more than a year in advance. If you know that already, why not prepare the people, begin to train the people, ahead of time — so that when you’re ready to do it, you have the workforce that’s necessary?”
