Job opportunities remain on hold

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - People still hoping to get hired for oil cleanup will have to wait. Sources tell WLOX News there are no more jobs available at this time.

The WIN Job Centers, which have been taking applications for various cleanup contractors, stopped taking applications about two weeks ago.

As of Wednesday, the application site was still active on the Mississippi Department of Employment Security website.

The official line from the state is: "all job opportunities remain on hold."

Some 3,000 people have been hired in Mississippi since the response to the Coastal Crisis began.
