ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay issued an executive order Wednesday to try and increase the number of woman and minorities working in the construction industry.

Executive Order:

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay signs Executive Order #46, which extends the existing workforce goals on City public works projects, commonly known as Board Bill 75, to all TIF projects that are $1million or larger, as city register Parrie L. May looks on.

The workforce goals are as follow: Twenty-five percent of labor hours are to be performed by minorities; five percent of labor hours are to be performed by women;

twenty percent of labor hours are to be performed by City residents, although those hours can also be counted towards the first two goals, and

fifteen percent of all hours are to be performed by apprentices enrolled in an approved training program.

The order will be implemented by the St. Louis Development Corporation and the St. Louis Area Agency on Training and Employment.
