EL PASO – Help is on the way, on the jobs front.
ReadyOne Industries, which makes clothes and other products for the military, has hundreds of job openings. The company exclusively hires those with significant disabilities, including the blind, to operate the company's sewing equipment.
ReadyOne held a job fair today in the Northeast. The company says dozens of applicants came through.
"I'm looking for a job...over the summer because I'm tired of doing nothing for the summer...I need to help my family, too,” said Simon Miramontes.
ReadyOne Industries said if they take on enough employees, the company will look to expand and open a new facility in West El Paso.
