While the state’s unemployment rate is well below the national average, thousands of people are still searching for a job.
Friday, many of the state’s unemployed showed up for a job fair for a new $100 million shopping center in Merrimack. The retail outlet is expected to create more than 800 positions.
By 7 a.m. Friday morning, hundreds of people lined up outside Nashua Community College for the Merrimack Premium Outlet job fair.
When it opens in mid-June, the outlets will feature 100 clothing, home goods, and other stores.
