THE BRONX - Hundreds of willing workers attended a job fair in the Bronx Friday even though the number of jobless claims dropped this month.

New reports show the unemployment rate dipped 0.1 percent in January. However, many who attended the job fair at the Bronx Chamber of Commerce blame the snow.

?It was just difficult getting around with the buses, trains,? said Jibreal Worths. ?Everything was delayed.?
