BASTROP, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Workforce Commission job fair
Tuesday in Bastrop will have 100 temporary jobs related to the Gulf
of Mexico oil spill.
Shirley Trapp of Morehouse Business and Career Solutions Center
says Bastrop was chosen for the fair because the community was hit
with job losses when International Paper closed its mill in 2008.
The News-Star reports that Hub Enterprises of Broussard, which
has a contract with BP, is recruiting 100 workers for security
officer and supervisor jobs along the coast.
Applicants must complete 16 hours of state-mandated security
officer training to qualify for the jobs, and Hub will provide the
training free. The jobs will pay between $13 and $14 an hour,
depending on experience.
