Mobile Works will provide the payroll and workers compensation for all of these temporary employees, as well as required safety equipment. The temporary positions will be used for general debris removal, post-storm cleanup and other basic tasks.
“This Disaster Relief grant represents one of the many investments by Mobile Works to provide jobs, training and economic initiatives for Mobile,” said Sydney Raine, President of Mobile Works. “This award will aid significantly in the Mobile areas recovery from Ivan and, just as importantly, will help up to 105 people whose jobs were displaced by Ivan to bring in much-needed income until they can find another permanent position or other workers in need of such jobs.”

New Report Shows Continued Jobs Shortage – News Video on Youtube Highlights Network Marketing Provides Opportunities for Women Entrepreneurs in Booming Anti-Aging Sector
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
MLM Network Marketing provides opportunities for women entrepreneurs in booming anti-aging sector, skincare products popular with aging boomers.
The U.S. Department of Labor releases its closely watched monthly jobs report, which may show modest improvement in the jobs picture but likely also will highlight a continued jobs shortage with millions of long-term unemployed Americans still struggling to find work in a bad economy. Todays Bureau of Labor Statistics report follows last months report showing the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 8.3 percent.
Although economists predict some improvement in the jobs picture, they do not expect to see significant movement in a job market in which the unemployment rate has been above 8 percent for 42 consecutive months and the average length of joblessness for those remaining in the labor force is nearly 39 weeks. These data exclude the millions of Americans who have stopped looking altogether and dropped out of the workforce. Six million job seekers have exhausted their unemployment benefits since the start of the economic downturn in 2007, according to a National Employment Law Project report.
With nearly 13 million Americans unemployed, and 21 million either under- or unemployed, sustained strong job growth is needed just to make a dent in the problem, according to recent statements from the Federal Reserve. Small businesses, many started by women, remain the nations primary creator of new jobs.
Over the past year, statistics show high numbers of women leaving the workforce due to the Great Recession and for personal considerations. Many women leave the labor force temporarily or permanently to care for children and other family members, making work-from-home careers an attractive option that provides the flexibility necessary to balance work and family responsibilities.
And the historic period of high unemployment is fueling consideration of alternative careers, with many women entrepreneurs exploring work-from-home opportunities including new ventures in multi-level marketing focused on the booming anti-aging sector.
Reports show that despite the challenging economic outlook women entrepreneurs are capitalizing on new work-from-home opportunities in MLM marketing, an alternative to traditional office jobs, starting their own successful businesses from home and making money on their own terms.
According to reports, as the nations population ages demand is expected to rise for such anti-aging therapies as skincare products and vitamin supplements, a network marketing segment poised for expansion as the nations aging baby boomers start to retire.
Direct selling is the sale of a consumer product or service, person-to-person, away from a fixed retail location, marketed through independent sales representatives who are sometimes also referred to as consultants, distributors or other titles.
Just about any product or service can be purchased through direct selling somewhere in the world. Many people think of cosmetics, wellness products and home d

U.S. private sector employment grew by 158,000 jobs in March, according to the ADP report released Wednesday. The professional business sector fared particularly well, adding 39,000 jobs last month. These job trends were reflected in service sector hiring on Hound.com.
Total nonfarm private employment grew last month, according to ADP jobs data released this week. The U.S. economy added 158,000 in March, with the greatest job gains occurring in the professional-business sector. The professional-business industry alone added 39,000 jobs last month. This sector includes service providing industries like accounting, IT, and consulting. In contrast, the goods-producing sector experienced its slowest rate of growth in the last six months. The ADP report was based on payroll data for nonfarm private employment and the numbers were considered a forerunner for the Bureau of Labor Statistics report, scheduled for release on Friday. Taken as a whole, the report painted a picture of a job market that is growing steadily.
The ADP data corresponded with independently collected data from Hound.com, a leading website for job seeking professionals. Hound has seen a steady increase in demand for service-producing jobs over the past few months. Since the beginning of the year, accounting and bookkeeping jobs have predictably risen, as many firms have increased their staff in order to prepare for the current tax season. Hound currently lists over 32,250 accounting jobs on its website. Other service-producing sectors like customer service have also grown, with nearly 93,000 customer service openings listed on the site at the time of this release. As the economy has continued to improve, demand has returned for financial-related employment, with 49,181 financial service jobs currently available on Hound. These jobs run the gamut from entry level positions to management.
During the economic downturn, the financial sector was obviously hit very hard from an employment standpoint, said Harrison Barnes, CEO of Hound.com. As the economy is starting to pick up again, were seeing a renewed demand for financial services, which has spurred hiring. Were seeing this trend across the board in many service-producing industries.
Hound.com is a job search site based in Pasadena, CA. It is a part of the Employment Research Institute and owned by A. Harrison Barnes.
