    so..let me get this straight….you have to pay in order to try and get a job? and yet Bernstien says that there are hundreds of jobs? who is collecting the $20/25???

    • Concerned Industry Specialist says

      Those who fail to see that both the MJBA and weed hire are both simply trying to fill a niche, they really bring nothing to the table other than bland comments regarding ‘business’.

      I suggest you attend their free meetings and do your own diligence, however, like many associations, the hype is as ridiculous as the idea that we need such an organization to ’round us all together’.

      I’d rather not be on the front page of the b.s. news, personally. And I’m up there.

  2. Brian says

    Who ever heard of paying to attend a job fair?

    Sounds like somebody wants to profit from this other than employers looking for good employees and job hunters looking for good employers to work for.
