4,000 People Show Up at Brooklyn Job Fair


Job losses may be slowing, but the number of unemployed is still high, as was proven today when 4,000 people showed up at a job fair at the Brownsville Recreation Center in Brooklyn, prompting organizers to call police for crowd-control purposes. “We did not expect this,” the organizer told the Times. “They just kept coming and coming. I’ve had job fairs like this before. Never have I seen this kind of response.” [City Room/NYT]
