On Wednesday, several businesses and government entities hosted a job fair to get those people back to work. Part-time workers welcomed the opportunity to explore other options.

“You know, there are at least 1,000 people who all of a sudden are finding jobs at the same time. So all the places I’ve applied to, I guess, just haven’t had the time to email me back and that’s alright. It’s not the most important thing right now but it’s really nice to get face-to-face with some of the people I’ve applied with,” said job applicant Bailey Klinger.
