Police shooting leads to job fair in Baden

ST. LOUIS - Around 90 people signed up for employment services up at an impromptu job fair in the Baden neighborhood in North St. Louis Tuesday night.

After the shooting a group gathered asking questions about the incident, others were there to protest, so some community leaders took action and started talking to the crowd about what they needed, how they could help, and many people said they need a job.

That's when Mayor Slay and Chris Carter Alderman of the 27th Ward took action and St. Louis's Agency on Training and Employment, SLATE.

Wednesday, they spent their morning calling and emailing everyone that gave them their information Tuesday night.

SLATE can help people get their G.E.D. and they can help with job training.

NewsChannel 5 talked to the Youth Services manager from SLATE who said it was a wonderful experience because she felt like she really helped a lot of people.
