It's been less than a week since Fleetwood Travel Trailers closed their doors, but already former employees are looking to the future. Tuesday, workers showed up at Anvil International in Longview for a job fair, aimed solely at recruiting former Fleetwood employees. The company is accepting applications and conducting interviews as a way to reach out to the more than 300 people now without jobs.
Undre Shankle, who's worked for Fleetwood for nearly ten years, says, "basically I just got to start over. I wasn't really expecting them to shut the doors so I'm out, trying to get another job, trying to take care of my family, basically, like any other man would do."
The East Texas Workforce Center in Longview is also holding a job fair this Thursday. It runs from nine o'clock in the morning to noon. All job seekers are welcome.
