Community meetings held to promote employment in EBR
BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is taking time to promote more city-parish services aimed at helping residents find and maintain jobs.
Officials are partnering with Employ BR, the Division of Human Development and Services, and City-Parish Human Resources over the next month and a half for three public meetings.
Citizens will be able to get a look at all the services, employment, and training opportunities provided by the city-parish.
The most recent numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show a 5.3% unemployment rate in EBR, which is a slight increase from the same time last year.
Since last year, the area has steadily added jobs at a rate higher than the national average. As of July 2017, Baton Rouge has added roughly 600 jobs.
