Are there incentives to hire local people? I know of one business that brought people from the south to work, because there were barriers to hiring local, like transportation.
Are there any community benefit agreements in the community, so that Battle Creek residents are hired first?
(Multiple, similar questions are grouped together.)
If we offer incentives, they are tied to job creation, and not necessarily to location.
We don’t currently know of any community benefit agreements, but we are gathering more information, and checking with Battle Creek businesses.
