A new way to help those needing employment has come to South Central Iowa as Well Works launched a new manufacturing program last week.  Well Works, a part of The Well Resource Center and A Call to Serve Ministries of Iowa, launched the program in a building located at 107 Vermeer Road. Well Works provides short-term employment with the goal of finding that person long-term employment.  Manufacturing officially begins today; Well Works employees will work 40 hours a week assembling hog catchers, a product of Ring-O-Matic. Eden Youngberg with Well Works says the goal of the program is o help fill the gap for individuals who have become unemployable, while teaching them to be good employees again.  The program is intended to be short-term and provide Well Works’ temporary employees with an income and teach structured work place standards, while allowing them to get back on their feet, according to a statement released by The Well.  About 70 percent of individuals who come to The Well Resource Center have a work-related issue, Youngberg said.
