Kentucky

SOMERSET, Ky. (FOX 56) – A pulaski county business owner is trying a new approach to hire workers. Alan Woodson owns magic monograms in Somerset, Kentucky.

He says he had five interviews scheduled recently, but none of the applicants showed up.

Now, he’s posting on his personal Facebook page, asking his friends to help spread the word about openings. So far his post has hundreds of shares.

“I spent most of Sunday afternoon wedding through Facebook messages of folks who are looking for employment and who actually seem interested in rejoining the workforce,” said Woodson.
