Youth Jobs: Waterbury Needs Shovellers

by Christopher O'Brien

Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary is calling upon any youth at least 14 years old and older who wants to earn minimum wage on Tuesday. After 34 inches of snow fell on the Brass City, the City’s public works crews still haven’t had a chance to dig out the thirty-odd schools in town.

Any person interested should show up at City Hall at noon on Tuesday dressed warmly and with a shovel. City Hall is at 235 Grand St., downtown Waterbury. 203-574-6712

The notice was posted to the Waterbury Police Athletic League’s Facebook page and reposted on the Mayor’s Facebook page Monday evening.
