Day Labor Center will now offer Saturday hours

The Cortez Day Labor Center at 2405 E. Empire St. will begin Saturday hours on May 28. The Day Labor Center is a program of the Bridge Emergency Shelter and is beginning its third year. Anna Bousquet continues as the manager. There have been suggestions that the center open on Saturdays during the summer because people who work all week may need day laborers on the weekends for yard work, field work, ranch work, construction, and other jobs. Saturday hours will be from 7 to 10 a.m. The center is a place where employers needing day labor can make contact with employees who are seeking day labor or short-term work. The phone number is 565-9109. Questions can be directed to: daylaborcentercortez@hotmail.com.
