DETROIT — When a newspaper delivery job vanished, the Detroit area was left with only a few options.
Now the newspaper delivery company is looking for new jobs.
The Detroit News says that in the past month, two more companies have offered jobs for the delivery company and it has hired an additional 15 people.
The company says the company has offered positions in the area of the Detroit Lakes and Southfield neighborhoods and it’s looking for people in the suburbs of Westland, Dearborn, and Dearborn Heights.
The newspaper says that there are now more than 1,200 people working in delivery jobs across the country, but that the company’s job loss has left many of them without the pay that their predecessors earned.
The News says it was first notified by a newspaper that a delivery company was cutting its jobs.
The newspaper says it contacted a number of delivery companies across the nation and got no response.
The paper says that since its initial announcement, the company also has received letters from the state Department of Labor, the Department of Education and other agencies seeking information about the jobs being lost.
The state has said it is looking into the situation and will make a decision about who will replace the workers by the end of this week.
