Chicago Job Fair Offers 400 Jobs for Migrants as Native Black Population Suffers Rising Unemployment:
Migrants were treated to a job fair in Chicago where employers were looking to offer about 400 of them jobs. Meanwhile, unemployment for city residents continues to trend upward.
The job fair was held on November 2 at the Chicago area Misericordia Home on the city’s north side where nearly 500 refugees from Venezuela, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Ukraine showed up to be courted for potential employment.
With interpreters provided for them, the migrants met with representatives in fields including health care, manufacturing, hospitality, logistics, and others.
The companies also offered help securing government services, legal papers, and even training and educational opportunities.
One of the organizers of the job fair was a migrant from Afghanistan.
Siam Pasarly, the co-founder of Kaar Poh Staffing Agency, told Chicago’s WGN-TV that he hopes to help immigrants avoid the struggles he went through when he first came to Chicago.
“It is very difficult, it is very tough. Until you experience it, you just don’t know,” he exclaimed. --->READ MORE HERE
