Job fair in Bristol attracts hundreds

Posted:

Vehicle manufacturer Utilimaster held a job fair in Bristol Tuesday morning.

"In the first two hours we've had about 150 people that have come through with their applications," says Chuck Kneble of WorkOne.

Utilimaster is trying to fill positions for their truck assembly line.

David Herron who attended the fair says he's been frustrated with the job market and has had to rely on part time work for the past year.  "Temp services they're good, you know you get a paycheck, yea you make money but you not gonna get no where, you not gonna get the benefits, your not gonna get the 401K."

Gerald Bergman of Cass County says the job market is even tougher in Michigan.  "Especially coming from Michigan, where there's, I hate to say it about Michigan - but there's hardly any jobs in Michigan."
