Sun Valley Searches High and Low

Posted By on Wed, Oct 28, 2009 at 2:23 PM

The heck with the local yobs. Sun Valley Group's gone south to fill jobs. To Colusa and Sutter and Glenn counties, specifically. Says the story in the Colusa County Sun Herald:

An Arcata flower company's unusual search for workers has plucked about 15 new employees from the Mid-Valley area, and about 15 more have agreed to relocate.

"They have hired people from Colusa County and Sutter County. We will continue to recruit from Colusa County and surrounding counties until our goal of 100 is met," said Kathy Craigo, owner of a local public relations firm who is coordinating the employee search for The Sun Valley Group.

The Herald notes that it's financially tough for some of the new hires to move to Humboldt, however, so "The Sun Valley Group has added $200 to each of the new employee's weekly paycheck to help offset the cost of temporary housing and moving."
