Gobs of jobs in Hobbs!
An email like that gets your attention.
Drive around Hobbs, said alert reader Jesse Monsey, and you’ll see banners and electronic signs saying, “Now Hiring” and even “$100 sign-on bonus.” The local police have offered a lavish signing bonus, and the city was forced to increase benefits to keep employees. Even the casino is offering tuition assistance and scheduling flexibility to students.
Jesse was responding to a recent column in which I quoted a business leader saying that if you could fog a mirror, you could find a job in Artesia.
“The reality here is that we are desperate for workers,” he said.
