Diversity Job Fair attracts 4,500 people seeking work

There were plenty of hard-luck stories at the Diversity Job Fair among the roughly 4,500 people strolling the booths.

Some of the attendees at Wednesday’s event at Century II are out of work, while others were just looking for more hours and more money.

It’s been an unusually difficult downturn for job seekers, with an average of 39 weeks for the unemployed to find new work.

Jayme Thompson of Wichita is 20 and has worked part-time at a large retailer for two years. After having her hours cut, she was at the job fair looking for better-paying work, or maybe a second job.

She is having trouble paying the rent and having enough left over for food and other basics. She wants to go to college to better her prospects, but she doesn’t have the money for tuition or even to pay the car insurance needed to commute to school.
