Looking for work? ‘Priority Hire’ to be spotlighted at Highland Park Action Committee this Wednesday

Jobseekers might be interested in this Wednesday’s monthly meeting of the Highland Park Action Committee. As just announced by HPAC:

We will be having a guest speaker talking about *Priority Hire* joining us for Wednesday’s HPAC meeting: The City of Seattle recently passed a Priority Hire ordinance which will improve access to construction employment and improve training programs for workers in need of family-wage jobs. The ordinance prioritizes the hiring of residents that live in economically distressed areas in Seattle and King County on city funded construction projects- and 98106 qualifies. See this website for more information.

Also on HPAC’s agenda, District 1 City Council candidate Chas Redmond. 6:30 pm potluck precedes the 7 pm meeting Wednesday (April 22nd) at Highland Park Improvement Club, 12th/Holden.
