BATON ROUGE – Employers are now dealing with a new crisis as the economy begins to rebound from the pandemic.
Some business owners say they’re struggling with finding enough staff members. To remedy this, a joint job fair and vaccination event was hosted Saturday by the Louisiana Workforce Commission. The goal of the event was to fill jobs and get workers vaccinated.
LWC teamed up with Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, State Senator Regina Barrow, BREC and Employ BR to bring the event to life. The job fair and vaccine site took place at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
