My name is Josh Fruik, and I've been a part of Laborers Local 1329 for 12 years. I was lacing up the work boots while my friends were going to college. I have worked in power plants, paper mills, oil and gas pipelines, college universities, and iron ore mines. I've got to work in several states throughout the years, including Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New York, and Maine. I have met many people on jobs in the past who are now friends. Starting as an organizer in mid-2020, I have the opportunity to help people get started with the laborers and enjoy the benefits that we as members receive.
