THE BRONX - A supermarket chain held a job fair today in search of qualified Bronx residents.

More than 100 people attended the fair at the Workforce One office on Fordham Road to apply for work at Aldi.

Workforce One is run by the City of New York, and helps bring in companies like Aldi to meet prospective employees from the Bronx.

They also have resources available to pair up job seekers with jobs they may qualify for.

Aldi says it is hiring in both of its two locations in the Bronx.

The New York State Department of Labor released figures indicating the Bronx has the highest unemployment rate in the state.
