High tech workers formerly employed by Solyndra are getting some much-needed help in the search for new jobs. Two cities are holding career fairs specifically for laid off workers of the failed solar start-up.
Hundreds of laid off Solyndra employees attended a special hi-tech jobs fair at Ohlone College in Newark Friday.
A group of former grocery store workers in San Jose is filing a lawsuit against a now-defunct chain of supermarkets. The laid off employees claim “Su Vianda” owes them, and the city of San Jose, hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan said she will rehire 10 of the 80 police officers who were laid off in July.
