To the editor: With the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Fairbanks, we should set in motion an effective and solid local hire resolution and law for all Alaskans.
The Arctic Slope Regional Corp. should have a seat at the table because a lot of their shareholders are involved and some are already working.
For many Alaskans who find employment, the money they make stays here within Alaska; therefore, it helps Alaska’s economy.
We need a local hire law equipped with teeth and backbone, legislation Outsiders can’t slither through.
Unity. Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. Henry Ford said that.
