The staffing firm Command Center is helping Gulf Coast locals clean up Isaac’s mess. The company has hired about 800 people from around New Orleans as temporary employees to help in the cleanup and recovery efforts. Command Center previously assisted residents in Joplin, MO, after a tornado devastated the area, and in the Gulf Coast after the BP PLC oil spill. Dave Wallace of Command Center says that once the storm cleared, it will take about four days for his crews to get into the field. He says he will eventually oversee about 1,200 hires from the Gulf.
