LSS Executive Director Says Immigrants and Refugees Can Help Meet Workforce Needs

Communities and businesses need to think about immigrants and refugees as potential workforce additions.

Tim Jurgens with Lutheran Social Services in Sioux Falls says immigrants have made a difference in several places already.

Jurgens says businesses are rewarded if they take a chance on adding immigrants.

Jurgens says new arrivals to the state have dropped from five hundred thirty-five in 2013, to two hundred nine last year.

Jurgens says they help refugees and immigrants get on a path to citizenship which can take years.
