Workforce Solutions Kicks Off ‘Hire Houston Youth’ Program With Job Fair

Workforce Solutions is a partner in the initiative and is hosting a job fair, with the mayor as a special guest, on Saturday, May 6.

We spoke with Mike Temple, director of Workforce Solutions, for this week’s Bauer Business Focus.
