A global pandemic and two hurricanes have delivered a perceived deadly blow to the economy of SWLA, but Crystal Scott of the American Job Center says that's not the case, as the need for local workers is on the rise.

Scott told KPLC she has been seeing an uptick in employers needing local workers in SWLA recently. She said her organization puts out a daily list called Fresh Jobs that focuses on new jobs being created in SWLA.
