According to an article by Liza Green in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette Thursday 3/26 “Northeast Indiana Works and WorkOne Northeast are working with more than 50 employers who are trying to fill jobs, amid thousands of workers being sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic.
Grocery stores that this month announced hiring sprees to keep up with customer demand are on the list, but so are numerous other sectors.”

According to Liza, detailed numbers for about 35 of the employers on the Northeast Indiana Works list show more than 475 jobs available.
