Regardless of the outcome, he says the continued support by the city of Jackson is encouraging.
Miller says, "In order for Jackson to have any forward progress they have to have these types of programs to ensure that the citizens are getting jobs. That they can get out and become productive citizens and tax paying citizens to improve the tax base of the city."
Which ultimately benefits the city.
According to the Mississippi Department of Employment Security in 2014 Hinds County had a 5.6 unemployment rate. The highest unemployment rate was Clay County with 13.3 percent.
Jobs for Jacksonians Coordinator for the City of Jackson, Jonathan Barnett, says its part of the city's goal to help its citizens have the tools needed to be career ready.
Barnett says, "It enhances the quality of life. That's one of the things that motivates us each and every single day. We want to make sure that each individual here is ready to go to work."
Miller says, "I think it's awesome. I would like to thank the City of Jackson for giving me this opportunity."
