Employment Offices Cutting Back

October 22, 2003  -- Posted at 7:49 AM CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR  --The state Employment Security Department will soon offer services only at Arkansas' 31 full-time offices and will no longer staff 25 part-time locations.

The part-time offices will still have unemployment insurance and job applications available but will not have workers on hand.

The 50 to 60 part-time staff will be offered jobs with fewer hours in the full-time offices.

 The changes are on track to take place next month. Department director Ed Rolle says the agency is working to cut costs.

The affected part-time locations are Ash Flat, Augusta, Brinkley, Clarendon, Clarksville, Clinton, Crossett, Danville, De Queen, DeWitt, Dumas, Heber Springs, Lake Village, Lonoke, Melbourne, Mountain View, Nashville, Rison, Salem in Fulton County, Sheridan, Siloam Springs, Star City, Stuttgart, Warren and Wynne.
