As ironic as it may be, the Coronavirus Crisis in New York State might result in the creation of many jobs here in Jasper.
Ed Jolly of the Provalis, a customer support group here said Friday that his company had contracted with New York State to process a large portion of the unemployment claims being filed there by people who are out of work.
According to Jolly, the company, which moved here last year, might hire as many as 100 additional employees to perform the necessary filings in connection with the claims.
Jolly said the company is hiring now and will continue to do so over the next few days.
Qualifications are minimal but a background check and drug tests are required for employment.
