Holding Out Hope for Jobs in Luzerne County
WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's unemployment rate continues to be higher than the state and national averages. So, it's no surprise thousands of people showed up for a job expo Tuesday at Mohegan Sun Arena. Just as David Kirkland was about to take a lunch break from his post at the 2014 Employment Expo, a few more job seekers approached his table. Kirkland represents Greiner Packaging Corporation. It's one of 90 employers who showed up for the event at Mohegan Sun Arena near Wilkes-Barre.
