Maureen Patterson, center, talks with Vivian Seaman, right, and Karen Schwab, about her past job experience Feb. 19, 2013, at Golden Gate Community Center in Golden Gate. It has been three years since she worked at LabCorp in Naples. Experience Works in partnership with Southwest Florida Works, was helping people 55+ at a recruitment fair, who have been out of work for a year or more, find jobs. Recently, Gov. Rick Scott has asked for $289.4 million for the state’s workforce boards. Employment places like Southwest Florida Works depend on state funding and grants to stay afloat and helping the public secure jobs. “My sister called on the phone and she said, ‘This (career fair) is for you — call them up.’” Patterson said.
