The state is looking for 120 unemployed people who can do clean-up and construction work that pays about $15.50 an hour. The applicants cannot be receiving unemployment benefits.
Connecticut has received $610,207 to pay for the workers, and could get up to $1,830,620 to cover the expense of the Hurricane Sandy clean up jobs, which could last as long as 20 weeks.
If there isn’t enough work in construction, some of the workers could provide food and clothing to disaster victims.
People who want to apply should email the closest CTWorks Career Center to their home, and include their name, address, phone number, email address and say they are unemployed.
