Employees at a Green Bay call center could find new opportunities in Door County. Alorica announced last week it would be closing its Green Bay operations in March of 2020. That would leave 143 employees out of work. While Door County employers have hundreds of jobs available, Jim Golembeski, Executive Director of the Bay Area Workforce Development Board, says some call center workers might not be able to take advantage of those openings that are at or below what they make currently.
However, there have been a number of new apartment buildings constructed and some are available at affordable prices, according to Jim Schuessler, Executive Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation. Schuessler says a new website can put job hunters in touch with Door County employers willing to take on under-skilled workers.
Schuessler says over 800 job openings are now on LiveDoorCounty.org just one weekend after the website rolled out.
