HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - A job fair is happening right now at the Audubon Kids Zone on Powell Street in Henderson.
Employers like Scott Manufacturing, Tropicana, Gibbs and others are on hand looking to fill full-time and part-time positions.
14 News spoke to one of the employers and they explained why it’s been difficult to find people wanting to work.
“It could be a multitude of things, getting money from unemployment, still scared to work during COVID, or people find another job that’s paying more money,” Terrence Smith with Tropicana said.
Some employers are offering sign-on bonuses.
The job fair will last until until 7 p.m.
