LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Workforce Solutions said they have seen a tremendous increase in their number of customers.  They said the area's large number of layoffs along with the development of new programs to help applicants, requires more employees.

Managing Director of Work Force Solutions, Maria Kassabaum said, "We've hired about an additional three employees to be able to accommodate the needs.  Although, we are setup to...accommodate the needs of the community, but these are kind of unusual times."

Kassabaum said job postings are down 30 to 40 percent.  She said Workforce Solutions wants to give all of their customers the best treatment they can, even if that means hiring a few new faces.
