Finding employees can be difficult in some parts of Kentucky and employers are increasing looking to the refugee population to fill the void.
According to a report from the Catholic Charities of Louisville, the 90 day retention rate for refugee employees in Kentucky was 92 percent in fiscal year 2017. Jon Crosby is a field representative for U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Bowling Green. Crosby says manufacturers across the state have told him they want to employ more refugees.
“They’re coming in to work, they’re ready to work they want to come back every day.”
