Sharp Iron gets funding from WF to recruit welders

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Sharp Iron in Wichita Falls is struggling to find enough welders to fill all their positions, and now the city is helping them out.

On Tuesday city councilors passed a resolution to give Sharp Iron $24,000 to recruit students from the Tulsa Welding School and triple their signing bonuses from $1,000 to $3,000.

President of Sharp Iron Michael Stanford said it's a way for them to fill their positions and bring more skilled-workers to Wichita Falls.
