Locals to get priority for oil-cleanup-jobs

MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST — State officials say residents in coastal counties will be given priority for any positions that open if the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico affects Mississippi.

The Mississippi Department of Employment Security says it has received a number of job openings from companies involved with the oil spill cleanup.

As of yesterday, the agency had referred over 2,200 applicants to response contractors.

Officials say potential volunteers and cleanup workers should be patient because much of the work won’t happen until the oil spill begins to affect Mississippi’s coastline.
