Post-pandemic Arizona job seekers flocking to flourishing marijuana industry
Before the pandemic, Aaron De La Rosa was working three jobs and no time to time to enjoy life or save money for a rainy day.
But as COVID-19 began to intensify and reach Arizona, his hours were slowly cut until he was officially let go.
“When I finally had that time to breathe and recollect myself, I said, ‘this isn’t the life I want to work towards,’” he added.
He was unemployed for eight months as the pandemic closed businesses, taxed the health care system and took thousands of lives.
After an unforgettable and difficult year, the economy is slowly recovering, and people are starting to head back to work.
