Jobless Seek Help At Work Force Center

It's less than what he wanted, but President Bush has agreed to a $350 million dollar tax cut, backed by House and Senate Republicans.

The president hopes the plan will put money back into the economy and generate more jobs. It's now up to legislators to approve the stimulus package.

Whether the package creates jobs remains to be seen. But 650 people who visited the East Texas Workforce Center Job Fair Thursday, remain hopeful. It was one of the largest turn-outs organizers have had.

Job hunter Tiffany Schaeffer says despite having experiencing as a fast food franchise manager, she's searching for entry-level jobs.

"Two years ago, people were not as picky as to who they hired," says Schaeffer. "You didn't have to have as much experience, and they were willing to train you to do more."
