MILWAUKEE -- The words "We are hiring" were music to the ears of recruits, but they just hoped the instruments were the machines of assembly lines.

Hundreds of former workers at Cargill meat processing visited MATC's Walker's Point Campus today to attend a job fair with 37 potential employers. They included food service, manufacturing, production, assembly and staffing agencies.
Mayor Barrett also visited the fair, which was co-sponsored by Cargill, MATC and Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board.
