City assists citizens with employment information

Gathered outside Councilman Wayne Landry’s home, 18 men who are currently unemployed but looking for work, listened as the Landry explained the opportunity presented to them.

The request for employees came from Technical Industries, the recently completed business located on Hwy. 14 by-pass on the east side of Abbeville.

The men were going to caravan to the site and complete applications for employment.

Rallying their enthusiasm, Landry told them to “show them that you want to work.”

Landry, who was vocal at Tuesday night’s city council meeting about jobs for people in his district added, “We want to get the community up and running. All they think we are about is sagging pants and doing drugs. There is a better way of life right?” he asked.

A resounding “Right!” was heard from the men.

The positions will be eight hours a day, five days a week. Thirty jobs have to be filled in order to comply with the agreement with the city which states they will be up and running by October 7.

Technical Industries is a manufacturer of ultrasonic pipe inspection equipment.
