News notes about jobs
With the new administration in Raleigh it seems that entry level jobs have become more available for our new arrivals. In times past refugees might wait for months before landing a job, these days, almost as soon as they get processed they are getting jobs.
A couple of months ago some of our refugees became the first of the housekeeping staff at the new cancer ward opened by Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem. Yesterday I heard that four of our community of Burmese are transitioning to permanent positions. (Many of the entry level jobs are via temporary employment services. After a period of time the temporary contracts end and the companies hire workers full time. Graham Personel Services has been very help in placing many workers.) Congratulations to Nu Nu and Steven, members of our church family!
Recently Marsh furniture opened a 2nd assembly line. Burmese workers have been a key part of the team making this venture a success. Stiven and his wife Christina are among the more recent workers added to the Marsh payroll.
