MARQUETTE COUNTY — The celebration of Labor Day and the contribution American workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well–being of our county is one that should be celebrated everyday.

Nowadays, part-time jobs can be career paths. Many companies have stores all across the U.S.,  and they look at these employees to get them on the management track to eventually work as regional managers or one day as a corporate employee. Along with various retail and fast food job openings, Michigan has other  strong job opportunities.

“The Upper Peninsula always has a lot of opportunities in the skilled trade field. Those range from electricians to welders to steel metal workers, there is quite a lot of opportunity when it comes to skilled labor and construction. The healthcare industry also has a lot of employment opportunities from the hospital to the insurance agencies. Health Care is a big role in our country now so it has really opened up a lot of opportunities for job seekers and individuals looking for work,” said Talent Team Member, Lewis Strom, Michigan Works.
