New Jobs

Carbondale has landed 180 new jobs in the customer service field with employer National Electronics Warranty, providing customer support to customers of Direct TV. Hiring starts in January with the jobs starting at $9.75 an hour (no benefits I bet). As far as pay, it's pretty good if you're a single adult and will support a couple with no children reasonably well. It's certainly above poverty wages for the county and about $2 more than the minimum wage. However, according to this, an adult with one child willhave difficulty making ends meet on this and a small family will need both parents to work.

BTW, I think that's Mayor Cole's head poking up from behind Mitch Carroll.
