Special Job Fair Held for Golden Guernsey Workers

Over 80 former Golden Guernsey Dairy employees came out to a job fair that had 33 employers.

Thirty-one employers gathered at Waukesha County Technical College to hold a special job fair for former Golden Guernsey Dairy, reported WISN.

About 88 workers attended the job fair on Friday.

The company abruptly shut its doors earlier this month and announced bankruptcy, leaving more than 100 employees wondering about their future.

Gov. Scott Walker has said his administration is working to help displaced Golden Guernsey workers who were given no warning that they would lose their jobs in the sudden plant closure. 

The job fair held at the college is part of the state's rapid response to help the unemployed workers. 

The employers in the job fair immediately need workers, reported WISN.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice filed a $2 million lien against Golden Guernsey for unpaid employee wages in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
