Telamon Corporation is making strides in the community


Seasonal or migrant farmworkers are known for planting, picking, and harvesting crops. They work long hours in varying weather conditions. Their work helps feed America and powers the local economy in various industries from food service, fashion, manufacturing, medical, and sales. Unfortunately, workers frequently experience seasonal unemployment and underemployment.

The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) was created to address seasonal unemployment and underemployment. "Farmworkers can access supportive services and skills training programs, which positions them to compete for better-paying jobs in agriculture or new industries," says Lakesha Fagan, State Program Manager-Alabama. "Services for spouses and dependents of farmworkers are also available."

Farmworkers interested in accessing services should visit Telamon Corp in the Alabama Career Center, 515 Springhill Plaza Court, Mobile, AL 36608.
