ORGANIZATIONS TEAM UP, HELP LAID-OFF MINERS AT BROOKWOOD JOB FAIR

BROOKWOOD – More than 500 West Alabamians seeking employment came out to meet with nearly 60 potential employers at a job fair this morning.

West Alabama Works, the Alabama Department of Labor and Alabama Career Center teamed us to help out displayed mine and steel workers.

Former miners said they’re grateful for the help finding new career possibilities and job interviews.

“I believe they had something for everybody you know,” said laid-off miner Jimmy Collins. “I just hope it pans out for everyone and they get a job and get back on their feet.”
