The V.I. Labor Department now has its own website that will make employment information accessible from anywhere in the world.
If you dial up www.vidol.org on your computer's URL line, you will be treated to Christmas music and a line-up of information about everything from former commissioners of Labor to links to national websites.
What you won't find are local job listings. Instead, under JOBS on the menu you will find a graphic indicating the site is under construction.
Labor Commissioner Carmen Rivera said the DOL is becoming a high-tech, new-information-age department, according to the Independent. But first, all the information must be entered into the system — a task that will hopefully be completed in 18 months, according to Rivera.
