Trig's welcomes new J1 visa employees

During the busy summer tourist season in the Northwoods, finding enough employees to fill the jobs in the area can often be a challenge for businesses. With that, it is often difficult to find enough housing for seasonal workers.

Trig's recently expanded its J1 visa program in Minocqua and Eagle River, offering a foreign exchange program for college students.

The J1 visa program gives students the opportunity to engage with Americans, share their cultures, strengthen their English language abilities, and to learn or build on skills that will help them in future careers, according to a T.A. Solberg Co. press release.

T.A. Solberg Co. is the parent company of Trig's.

Trig's partners with an agency which assists in recruitment, interviews, assignments, travel and communication, the release states.

To date, Trig's has hired 15 students to participate in the program this year with the potential to expand to 25 students in future years. It is also interested in possibly opening it up to other area businesses to help with their employment needs as well.

Trig's has recently converted a property to provide lodging for the J1 visa students.

"The ability to provide housing and transportation to students is a real benefit," TA Solberg president Bob Jaskolski said. "Also, being a part of this program allows us to share our beautiful Northwoods community and culture while providing valuable work experience to students from around the world."

The housing includes laundry, common areas, internet and outdoor space.

"By taking a big picture look at the employment needs in our area, we realized we could take the lead on giving students a great experience by providing employment, housing, transportation and a unique cultural experiences in Northern Wisconsin," Jaskolski said.
