The new federal prison in Berlin still has plenty of jobs to fill and there’s a chance next Tuesday to learn more about them.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
With 255 jobs at the new federal prison still available a job fair is planned next Tuesday in Berlin.
Officials from the Bureau of Prisons will be answering questions, says Diana Nelson, with New Hampshire Employment Security.
“We’ve had a lot of questions come up about what were the hours be, when will my days off be, is it shift work. These people will be able to answer those questions for them.”
After about 25 years the Car-Freshner plant in Berlin is closing.
Judy Piarulli, an official at Car-Freshner’s headquarters in Watertown, N.Y., declined to say how many workers are losing their jobs.
But Diana Nelson, an official with New Hampshire Employment Security office in Berlin, said 46 workers were laid off.
She said another 24 part-time workers lost their jobs in February.
The plant makes the Little Trees brand of air fresheners typically seen hanging from rear-view mirrors.
