Local VFW Post to Host Job Fair for Area Veterans


STATELINE (WIFR) – Another major problem here in the Stateline is the lack of jobs, especially when it comes to veterans.

Those who have spent time on the front lines are now in the unemployment line and a local VFW post want that to change.

Workforce Connection and members of Boone County’s American Legion are joining forces this Wednesday for a job fair at the UAW Hall on Chrysler Drive.

It’s completely free for vets and for employers, so if you've just hung the “help wanted” sign, the Illinois Department of Employment Security is encouraging you to interview the men and women who have served our country.
