Thanksgiving, for jobs.
North Carolina has been slow to recover from this recession, but today I give thanks for the jobs afforded the refugees of the Triad. “When I called around this week to help Graham fill four more slots for custodial work at a nearby hospital, I found most everyone who needed a job had one. The Chin men and women are all settled into jobs. All but the newest arriving Karen families have a member who has started work.
In the last six months, Paula at Graham Personnel helped placed Eh Paw and Eh Yaw; started Toe Toe at a job near the airport cutting paper, Esther Moe and Lai Thang Pui, Lal Liuan Pui i, Ray Wah, and Ko Saw at Marsh cabinets here in town; and Nyein, Phong Hten, Steven, Toe Win, Eh Kaw Htoo and Peh Low at Baptist hospital doing custodial work.
