Louisiana Workforce Commission Opens New Mobile Career Unit in Boothville-Venice

BATON ROUGE (May 12, 2010) - The Louisiana Workforce Commission will open a new Mobile Career Unit in Plaquemines Parish Thursday to serve local residents needing workforce services.

The mobile unit's location is 41093 Highway 23 in Boothville-Venice, the same location as BP's claim office in the area.

A second mobile unit will continue to operate in St. Bernard Parish at Islenos Museum, 1345 Bayou Road, St. Bernard. The units are open each week day from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Plans are under way to open additional mobile units in Grand Isle, Lafitte and Cut Off in the near future. More information on those locations will be given as soon as details are available.

The mobile units offer a range of services for job seekers and workers, including assistance with applying for potential jobs that may become available due to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Workforce Commission services are offered at no cost to job seekers and employers.

A toll-free hotline has been established by BP to discuss spill-related damage claims, including loss of income: 1-800-440-0858.
