Employment Agency Hiring For Storm Relief Pulls Out of Newark After "Aggressive" Incidents

The agency doesn't want to describe the threatening incidents. More than 1,000 people showed up looking for work earlier


About 400 people, many from Newark, lost out on part-time jobs cleaning up storm damage this week when an Idaho-based employment agency pulled out of the project because of fears of violence.

Guaranteed jobs that started Tuesday and would have been available for several months were canceled by Command Center Inc., the temporary employment agency contracted to do the clean up, several of the people now out of work said.
