NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The City of New Orleans is holding a job fair Tuesday to recruit 150 temporary employees for Mardi Gras clean-up work.

An announcement Thursday said workers will earn $10.55 an hour with the potential to earn an average of $700 over the two-week season. That season runs from Feb. 2 through Feb. 13.

It says qualified people will chosen to attend an orientation session and register for a required job readiness class on Jan. 16.
