Greensboro, NC -- 2 Wants To Know or 2WTK is once again celebrating companies that make products right here in our community--and most importantly put local people to work.
While doing stories on jobs, resumes, additional schooling, 2 Wants To Know asked local companies to partner with us in the Add A Job campaign. The premise is simple, it's one job added. But make no mistake, it's a big deal to get a job and to add one.
Three companies in the Triad have said "Yes". Spring Air Mattress, Miss Jenny's Pickles and Neese's Sausage.
Neese's Sausage was first to make good on their pledge. Chris Chambers now has a job after looking for four years.
Now job number two is a reality! Spring Air Mattress made room on the payroll for a machine operator. Dozens and dozens of people applied. Factory work is hard to find these days.
Juan Hernandez got the job and when you hear how he talks about the work you'll understand why.
"This is such an opportunity. It's one of those jobs where you think you are going to do something with your life."
Hernandez says Spring Air Mattress has a family atmosphere, which is important to him. "I have two little girls and you have to be the support of your family, that's what I can provide them now that I have this job."
2WTK sends out a huge thank you to Spring Air Mattress and Neese's Sausage for partnering with us on the Add A Job campaign. Miss Jenny's Pickles is next.
Three jobs that didn't exist before, it is certainly a start!
