Last week's Times had 59 job vacancies being advertised. The newspaper averages more than 40 openings every week.
At one time, there was a surplus of people and any job opening had 50 or 60 applicants. Not so now. Life has changed here in Rainy River District.
Almost every restaurant and fast-food operation has openings for servers and cooks. Almost every retailer in the district continues to look for salespeople to serve customers.
People can now shop for jobs.
Meanwhile, doctors are being sought to fill requirements in both Fort Frances and Emo.
