  • Hire Alabama First — Mobile Baykeeper
    Grandman Triathlon Bay Bites Bay Bash Gallery 2015 Contribute Partnerships Partnerships 100 1000 ADEM Reform Coalition Alabama Stormwater Partnership Alabama Renewal Group Coastal Alabama Stormwater Team Hire Alabama First Hire Alabama First Visit Website Hire Alabama First s goal is to motivate employers to hire citizens throughout the state of Alabama when a natural or manmade disaster impacts their ability to earn a living We believe this is vital to Alabama s economy because impacted communities are the first to lose their jobs and often the last to be rehired As you already know in 2010 the BP Oil Disaster prevented many local citizens from doing the work that sustains economies throughout the Gulf Coast According to experts this man made disaster could be responsible for the loss of 1 million jobs on the Gulf Coast and in 2011 more than 13 000 people lost their jobs after a series of tornados ravaged Alabama All of this came on the heels of Hurricane Katrina which cost the Alabama tourism industry 192 million in 2005 As the Gulf Coast is poised to receive billions of dollars from fines penalizing BP and other responsible parties in the wake of the BP Oil Disaster we want to ensure that funding is spent within our local communities This bill could require Alabama employers to consider our local citizens for open positions before hiring out of state workers if they are receiving government funding after a disaster It could also establish a training regimen for Alabama workers for jobs that would otherwise be hired out of state due to lack of experienced workers To learn more or to become a partner call our office at 251 433 4229 Also follow Hire Alabama First on Facebook and Twitter HireAlabama Back to Top Bay Blog Partnerships Partnerships
