Schaumburg – Yesterday Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) hosted another successful job fair in Schaumburg, which brought over 500 jobseekers and 43 employers together.

This is the third job fair Walsh has held since coming to office.

Congressman Joe Walsh listens to a job seeker.

“Illinois is still hurting, and the success of these job fairs show how desperately Illinoisans want to get back to work,” Walsh said.

The state’s unemployment rate has hovered above 8% for over a year and roughly half a million Illinoisans remain unemployed.

Congressman Joe Walsh speaks at his Schaumburg Job Fair.

The purpose of the job fairs are to put these unemployed workers with Illinois employers who can provide good-paying, local jobs.

Walsh, who chairs the House Small Business Committee’s Subcommittee on Economic Growth and Capital Access, recently held a hearing in Washington that delved into crippling federal tax policies burdening small businesses.

Some of the Schaumburg Job Fair exhibits were in the hall.

Representatives in Illinois testified that the Death Tax, which must be paid when family businesses pass on to one another after a death, limit the amount of money they can put into creating more jobs needed by Illinoisans.

“President Obama and his liberal allies think over regulation, higher taxes like the Death Tax, and more spending will get Americans back to work – they are dead wrong. Putting those needing jobs directly in touch with those who can provide them like we did at today’s job fair, does. ”

Walsh’s job fair in Schaumburg featured a number of Illinois employers, including

  • Northrop Grumman,
  • Carmax,
  • Pace,
  • Abbott Laboratories,
  • Cardinal Health,
  • GCG Financial
  • among others.

Walsh will host another job fair on July 23rd with Representatives

  • Bob Dold (IL-10),
  • Peter Roskam (IL-6), and
  • Randy Hultgren (IL-14).

  1. Mary Kay?

    Glad to see Joe held a real quality job fair.

    Americans will be hard pressed to sell makeup – expensive products at that – especially in these downtrodden times.

    Who needs blush when a tax bill can equally suffice.

  2. i’ve used Mary Kay products for years and it costs no more than make up at Macy’s .

    Looking presentable can be uplifting, especially at a job interview.

    A good job fair Joe.

  3. Dear Quiet No Longer,

    Just as expensive as Macy’s?!

    Glad you have the luxury to drive to Schaumberg, go to Woodfield, and see it reasonable to spend money on overpriced products.

    For us mainstream Americans, Wal*Mart and Target are within budgets.

    Didn’t know the GOP was siding with pretentious Macy clients now.

    Thought that was only for the educational elite like President Obama.

    Cheers to the Hippocratic GOP elite like Quiet no longer – Looking presentably pretentious by Macy’s and out of touch with Joe Walsh since 2010.

  4. To Really?

    Sounds like you have the same ideals as Obama the socialist loving president.

    What a pitty.
