After announcing that he would raise the base salary of municipal employees to $10 per hour, San Juan Mayor Miguel Romero Lugo said Thursday that the city council will be holding the recruitment event “Work in San Juan!”
The initiative will take place on Monday, Oct. 31, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the second floor of Roberto Clemente Coliseum. Qualifying participants will be hired instantly and begin their work on Tuesday, Nov 1.
“Human resources aimed at meeting the needs of citizens are essential to provide a quality service to our people,” Romero Lugo said. “We have identified key positions from cleaning and beautification workers to plumbers and electricians’ assistants that we need to recruit immediately.”
The mayor added that “I call on all people who want to be part of the San Juan workforce to come together at this recruitment event to be part of the extraordinary group that is making San Juan shine again like never before.”
Those interested must bring a copy of their social security card and photo identification.
