Unemployed share frustrations, seek help
By Caitlin Coakley CHARLOTTE — The room at Goodwill’s Career Development Center where Mayor Anthony Foxx held a town hall meeting on Wednesday was filled with people struggling to find work in a still-tough economy. Some looked tired. Others looked stern. Still others were hopeful. The meeting was the second of Foxx’s efforts to gather members of the community who are unemployed or underemployed to share stories and learn about resources. Also attending the meeting were representatives from Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), a homeowners advocacy program; the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Workforce Development Board; United Family Services; Central Piedmont Community College and others.
