Green River Recruits Workers

Green River, Wyoming –

Workers are scarce in Green River and community leaders will try and recruit families to solve the problem. Chamber Director Janet Hartford says they can't find needed employees to work in the Oil and Gas industry and at the same time, at least one fast food company has gone to the International market to try and find employees. Hartford says because of this they will work with the Wyoming Business Council to try and step up efforts to recruit families.
Hartford admits that to be successful, employers will need to pay a competitive wage. She also believes that the oil and gas jobs will be in the county for a long time.
