Heed Immigration Rules When Hiring Foreign Employees

Heed Immigration Rules When Hiring Foreign Employees

 

A recent influx of jobs into the Western New York marketplace has left Buffalo area businesses in an interesting position — trying to find enough qualified employees to fill those openings. As a result, a number of companies, especially those needing to fill high-tech positions, may expand their search beyond U.S. borders.

That, however, can create unanticipated problems for companies not familiar with the process for filling positions with foreign nationals. In a nutshell, the process can be both complicated and expensive.

Niagara Wheatfield Transportation Department Prepares Kindergartners for First Day

Niagara Wheatfield Transportation Department Prepares Kindergartners for First Day

For many of the kindergarten students in the district, the first day of school can be pretty traumatic.  The Niagara Wheatfield CSD Transportation Director Leslie Buczowski and her transportation personnel recently held two sessions at Colonial Village Elementary to help prepare them for their big day.

 

Mrs. Buczowski and the bus drivers went over safety procedures with the students and their families.  “We like to do this every year because it makes it so much easier on the students when they know what to expect when they get on the bus.  It also allows us to give their parents tips on how to make it a safer school year for everyone.” 

 

The session concludes with students and families taking a bus ride so the students get over that fear and get to share their first experience with their parents.  “We find it really helps them not be so overwhelmed and frightened on that first day and everyone has a great time.”

Orleans/Niagara BOCES Welding Program Bike Racks Unveiled in Medina

Last year students in Eric Farrell’s Welding Program at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center made some creative welding sculptures at the request of the Village of Medina Tourism Committee.  “We wanted some bike racks in downtown Medina,” says James Hancock, who is on the committee.  “The apple is Medina’s symbol because of all the fruit we produce and the students decided to make that their theme and made some gorgeous pieces.  We were all impressed how beautiful they are.” 

Mr. Farrell’s class designed the bike racks made each individual part in AutoCAD and then used a CNC machine and a plasma cutter to bend the material and then weld and grind it.   They were then delivered to F&H Metal Finishing Company who painted them and then the Department of Public Works placed two of them on Main Street and the third by the canal.
