Michiana man struggles to find work due to coronavirus’ impact on businesses
NILES, Mich. – One man in Niles spoke with ABC 57 about the struggle of finding employment due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Michigan and Indiana.
Robert Valentic says he is out of a job, but was already having trouble looking for work before the pandemic hit Michiana.
“It’s hard in the first place and then after with all this stuff going on, now it’s 15 to 20 to 30, sometimes near impossible to find a job. Everyone’s scared,” Valentic said.
He says that with businesses closing across Michiana, it has become much harder to find work because even existing employees are struggling.
We have been connecting with other Michiana viewers as well, and they say that times are not easy at the moment.
Small business owners and employees have been greatly impacted by the change.
Owners and employees alike say they are unsure about the future of their businesses, and those without jobs at the moment are concerned about paying bills and providing for their families.
