The Community Action Organization of Western New York and training department has teamed up with the Mobile Safety-Net Team and ACCESS WNY to help connect Lackawanna residents to living-wage jobs. This effort by the three entities began back in January after they discovered that employers need to create a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

This effort will also improve Erie County's unemployment rate and help to increase diversity and inclusivity for employers.

Working together with ACCESS WNY and Mobile Safety-Net Teams to organize job fairs for citizens in Lackawanna strengthens our ability to utilize resources and collaborate on ideas to meet the needs of residents, working with companies like Amazon and FedEx, will help create a more diverse workforce and provide residents with more access to livable-wage jobs.

said, Joe Milazzo according to

There will be a job fair with Amazon the will take place virtually on March 25, this job fair will give job seekers the opportunity to check out all the positions Amazon is hiring for as well as the application process. Lackawanna residents that would like more information can click here.

I travel through Lackawanna all the time for business and back in my coaching days, I was always in the city, and there are some places there that are really neat to see, in my opinion. This is a great effort by these groups and I'm happy to see that a plan is in place to bring more opportunities to residents in the city.
