Workforce and Job Availability in Lovely Ames

Mel and Brenda Brier come together to talk about the workforce initiative, which is designed to lower the unemployment rate in Story County, which Brenda says that the County is tied with a community in North Carolina for the lowest unemployment rate in the country.

Mel then continues his subject from yesterday by asking Brenda her opinion on minimum wage in the Ames area, to which she responds that there are only few if any full-time jobs in the Ames area that don't pay a living wage, that many of them do care about supporting their workers, and that minimum wage part-time jobs are for teens to get a start in the working world.

Lastly, they draw attention to, a website designed to show every job availability in Ames, and make it easy to find a job opening perfect for the user.
