HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - The 2020 census is coming up in the near future, and the U.S Census Bureau is looking for extra help.
A member from the Census Bureau was at the Portage Lake District Library Friday, guiding those who are interested through the application process. The Census Bureau is hiring a variety of positions offering 14 dollars an hour and the ability to set your own hours.
Census data is an important resource for local government and many organizations.
“The information that we can gather from the census bureau will help us put together all kinds of plans that can have all kinds of positive outcomes for the different areas in our community. I know many of our partners rely on that to make the key decisions they have to make on who they're going to serve and what they’re going to serve them with,” said Michael Babcock, the Marketing Communications Coordinator for the Portage Health Foundation.
