Peters co-sponsored H.R. 2353, the bipartisan Strengthening Careers and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, which was signed into law by President Trump on July 31, 2018.

“What I’ve seen is that there are a lot of high-paying jobs that do take training, but they don’t require a college degree and they pay enough for people to live off of, raise a family, and have a retirement,” Peters states in his filmed interview. “We want to make sure people are trained for that.”

The documentary is part of HARDI’s Workforce Recruitment Initiative, which aims to bring awareness of careers in the HVACR industry and wholesale distribution to younger generations.

“If we want our kids to have the same chance that we did and compete in an economy that’s different, we have to be more open minded about what skills we give them. And that’s why this is really a flexible and responsive way to train young people. Let’s give them the skills that matches our economy today,” Peters continues.

HARDI (Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International) is the single voice of wholesale distribution within the HVACR industry.

HARDI members market, distribute, and support heating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration equipment, parts and supplies.
