Congressman Joe Courtney on FRIDAY, March 30, from 10:30 a.m. -- 12:30 p.m. will participate in the Mansfield Job Fair, which he coordinated with the Eastern Workforce Investment Board (EWIB), CT Works, the Chronicle Newspaper, Quinebaug Valley Community College, the Northeastern Chamber of Commerce and the Windham Chamber of Commerce. Rep. Courtney's office will have a booth at the fair. In addition to providing job seekers and businesses with information veterans hiring tax credits and federal resources, staffers from Congressman Courtney's office will be on hand to help constituents with casework requests.
"In every sense, a job is the best social program of all. A job creates self-sufficiency and restores confidence people have in themselves, their family and their community," said Congressman Courtney. "Growing jobs -- whether by opening new markets and boosting exports or by providing incentives to hire veterans -- is critical to our continued economic recovery. We have more work to do to restore the American Dream, but this event will be a good boost toward achieving that goal."
