In his post :
“It was reported in the news this week that total employment declined by 121,800 in Q2 2020 — a more than a four-fold increase from Q1 2020.
Many residents have shared their concerns about job security and finding a new job. At one of the coffee shops this morning, we bumped into a resident who was looking for a job. At the same time, we met another who was looking to hire. We quickly introduced them both and they had an interview on the spot.
I hope it works out for both parties!
Our team will continue to do our best to assist residents who are looking for new roles.”
