Coming into work earlier in the day, I was enjoying my fresh coffee and an incredible June morning in northern Maine. When I got to the north end of Main Street in Almost Isle, I noticed that the War of Signs of a few weeks ago has taken a turn.
The new message is consistent across all businesses. HELP! WE HIRE! In fact, I counted at least 13 companies on Main Street advertising for help. Almost every company that has a billboard that had a message begging people to apply for work. For those not taking a trip to downtown Presque Isle today, here is what you would see. We will be working from the north end of town to the south end.

As you can see, in Presque Isle there are plenty of job openings just like in most other areas of the state. Let’s see if we can get these signs to display different messages by the end of the summer.
