There are jobs, health insurance rising, bank cuts, and more Main Street lofts...

From Business Today:

The numbers tell us that jobs are hard to come by, butJob fair 02  companies say they are hiring. What gives? More than 30 companies were recruiting at the Career Fest job fair in Cheektowaga on Tuesday, and Home Depot announced it is seeking 250 people for part-time jobs in the region. It seems there are certain types of jobs available - entry level, sales, part-time - but real, career-type jobs are scarce. The more experienced job seekers at the job fair said they were disappointed with the types of jobs available.

Health insurance costs are rising, even for the state-sponsored insurance for small businesses and individuals called Healthy New York.

First Niagara Financial Group will lay off 219 people in Connecticut when it takes over NewAlliance Bancshares. The bank filed a WARN notice to the state LAbor Department about the cuts. the bank says it will not cut any jobs that deal with customers, just back office tasks that can be done elsewhere.

A former business next to Bennet High School on Main Street, most recently called Bethune Hall, will become loft-style apartments under a plan by Ciminelli Real Estate Corp. The former Buffalo Meter Co. at 2915 Main St. has been vacant for years.
