Minnesota-based Red Wing Boots is trying to help their community this Labor Day by offering their stores as job centers.
Rather than a traditional Labor Day sale, the manufacturer/retailer is linking with others to turn the Red Wing website and retail stores into job centers in an effort to help 25 million Americans unemployed due to the coronavirus find jobs.
A quick look at the companies and positions available at the Red Wing site show a diverse mix of opportunities — from logistics and engineering to welding and distribution and sales — across the US.
Companies listing jobs in South Carolina include:
- Arcosa Meyer Utility Structures, has various production and technician positions at the Lancaster site
- Brose, automotive supplier based in Germany
- The Execu Search Group, a job placement site
- Hearth & Home Technologies, fireplace manufacturer, distributer
- Helmets to Hardhats, a non-profit that assists active-duty military and veterans transition to civilian construction opportunities
- Northern Tool, has distribution and small engine repair, parts and service positions
