LaborWorks keeps business moving through hard times

Sabo has been in the labor industry since 1987.
“I come from a company called Labor World,” he said. “I was also the national operations director for Labor Ready.”
Sabo predicted that another venue to match laborers with employers on a temporary basis was needed in Washington. The company can find jobs for blue-collar workers that require a low skill level, but it can also hire truck drivers, certified forklift drivers and carpenters.
“It’s the whole ‘union hall’ concept,” he said. “We open at five in the morning. About 70 to 80 percent are the same people every day, and another 30 percent work on a limited basis. About 15 percent are women. The client could be one person that’s moving a big desk, or if a truck overturns on the highway and they need to get stuff off the road.
“We get a lot of people’s Honey-Do lists when the husband doesn’t want to do it.”
