‘I’ve earned my way to the top’

I’ve earned my way to the top,” says Rita Romero, a former jewelry designer who was certified as a utility lineman by Los Angeles Trade Technical College, which offered an all-female class. Linemen — and linewomen — start at $30 an hour in Southern California.

It’s all on Community College Spotlight.
