Fight for Jobs

FIGHT FOR LOCAL JOBS IN THE SECOND DISTRICT

New Meeting Date: October 5, 2010

The Board of Supervisors will vote on a proposal to establish a Local Worker Hiring Policy for the $145 million Martin Luther King, Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center. With over $400 million of construction activity on the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Hospital and surrounding buildings, this is our first opportunity to promote local hiring.

The proposed policy will ensure that at least 30% of total construction hours worked under a Project Labor Agreement with the building trade unions are performed by local residents who live in high unemployment ZIP codes (150% of the County average), and that a substantial portion of these are set aside for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Come and let your voice be heard in support of local hiring.

STAND UP FOR LOCAL JOBS

Job-Readiness Workshop For Persons Who Are Currently On Parole

Parole to Payroll

Research indicates that felons who get and keep a job for one year after release seldom return to prison!

Our Job Readiness Workshops address the special needs of persons with criminal convictions who desire to get and keep a job. The setting provides information and discussion on the following topics:

➢ Why it is difficult for persons with criminal convictions to get a job.
➢ Why it is important to obtain a copy of your criminal record before you seek employment.
➢ What questions potential employers can and cannot ask you.
➢ How to handle gaps in employment when job seeking.
➢ How to answer tough questions about criminal convictions on job applications and during job interviews.

Successful participants will take part in a graduation ceremony where they will receive a certificate of completion and supportive services to be used for your job search.

Eligibility
• Must be able to provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States
