Those evil Koch brothers are at it again. This time they’re sponsoring training for low-income students to learn marketable job skills.

Wait, what?

The Koch brothers and Koch Industries have been demonized by the media and the left for years. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is particularly famous for his diatribes against the wealthy conservative activists, saying they have “no conscience,” are “un-American,” and a threat to our democracy.

You won't often hear about it, but in addition to donating to conservative political causes, the Koch family also donates a vast amount of money to charitable causes like cancer research, criminal justice reform, the arts, and higher education. The Koch name can be found on hospitals, theaters, and countless boards and charity organizations. Some of their recent projects are helping young Americans find jobs.

Opportunity Lives reported that Koch Industries teamed up with the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, a charity organization “that rewards people with a passion to get trained for skilled jobs that actually exist.”

The foundation promotes trade work, job skills, and apprentice-style training to address the skills gap many young people face after graduating college and attempting to get a career in their chosen field.

Mike Rowe said the Kochs have allowed his foundation to double the number of scholarships to attend this year’s national SkillsUSA competition. A total of 90 high school and college students who would have otherwise been unable to afford to attend the competition were awarded scholarships this year, thanks to Koch funding. Students competed in various skilled trades such as building management, carpentry, and mobile electronics installation.

“These students likely wouldn’t have been able to compete at the national level, or have the future opportunities afforded them without their participation at SkillsUSA,” said Jay Caruso of Opportunity Lives.

Another charitable organization that Rowe and the Kochs partner with is called Project Jumpstart. This program helps low-income Baltimore residents, who have either a high school diploma or GED, gain the knowledge and skills needed to get jobs in the construction field.

Last year, critics were appalled by reports that the Kochs could spend as much as $1 billion on the 2016 presidential election, but they forget about the estimated $1.5 billion they've spent on an array of worthy causes.

MSNBC host and longtime Koch critic Lawrence O'Donnell gained a newfound appreciation for the billionaire family when he discovered that David Koch had donated $25 million to the hospital that saved his life.

"You can be outraged by what the Koch brothers do with their money in politics," he said, "and you can appreciate what they contribute to hospital and medical research and you can do that at the same time and still retain the ability to function."
