HUDSONVILLE, MI (WHTC) - There were an equal amount of laid-off workers and prospective employers at a three-hour job fair in Hudsonville yesterday morning. The Ottawa County Michigan Works office staged the exclusive event for those idled when Lamar Construction abruptly ceased its Hudsonville operations two weeks ago and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation. About 30 of around 170 employees attended, with 30 companies having representatives on hand, as there is a shortage of available skilled labor in the local construction industry. Agency officials also had information on available educational opportunities for those workers.
