Two Valley lawmakers say helping people find jobs is not a partisan issue.

A job fair in Lisbon was a joint effort of Republican Congressman Bill Johnson and Democratic State Senator Joe Schiavoni.

Johnson says he's pleased that many employers and labor groups are looking specifically to meet with returning veterans.

“The vets have a direct entry into our programs. We have a program called h2h that's helmet to hardhat. Any former veteran that when they come to us they can get plugged into our apprenticeship program,” said Tony Ditommaso, Jr., Regional Council of Carpenters.

The job fair featured 50 employers with an estimated 1,000 job openings.
