Learning Middle Skills To Snag Living Wages

Shortly after she moved to Chicago in 1999, Aurora Ibarra, recently widowed and caring for her three young children, spent time at the hospital bedside of an aunt who had fallen ill.

Ibarra, who had previously worked in the fields harvesting onions in New Mexico and Texas, and as a painter on construction projects in Denver, remembers her aunt asking her why she worked so hard at painting houses when she was so good at nursing her back to health.

A career in health care sounded interesting — but Ibarra didn't know where to begin. And with limited English, the native of Mexico worried she couldn't do it.

A program through the nonprofit Instituto del Progreso Latino that prepares immigrants for health care jobs helped get her on the starting line. Last month, after a long journey of studying and working her way up the ranks, Ibarra earned her associate's degree and certification as a registered nurse, landing one of the high-growth, middle-skill jobs that workforce industry leaders say are key to the Chicago area's economic recovery and the revival of the middle class.
