On Monday afternoon, May 11, 2015, Danko Arlington was featured on “Midday” on WYPR 88.1 FM– Baltimore’s public radio station. Midday is WYPR’s daily public affairs program and is hosted by long time Baltimore Sun columnist Dan Rodricks. The featured topic that day was the state of manufacturing in Maryland, including new skills and job creation.
With the recent wake of city unrest after the death of Freddie Grey, special focus was made on how manufacturing could address long-term poverty and relatively high unemployment in inner-city Baltimore and other cities.
Danko Arlington’s success with employer engagement, hiring from faith based groups, and collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development was able to provide listeners with hope for positive change in Northwest Baltimore.
