Flooding & Tornado Damage In South – Creates Job Opportunities For Michiganders

BIRMINGHAM (WWJ) – The “Help Wanted” sign is out at Birmingham based Belfor Property Restoration in the wake of flooding and tornadoes in the south and the earthquake in Japan.  Belfor CEO, Sheldon Yellen,  says they’ll be doing work for the government in Japan.

Yellen says they will also need two-to three thousand people working in the south for four months at a time.

“We have sent people in from the states. We’ve also got our European colleagues have also sent people in from all over Europe … we’ve sent people into Japan.  Our people have signed up for four-month tours of duty and we’ll be rotating people in and out of Japan throughout the next couple years,” says Yellen.

“We’re just trying to do the best we can to get people back into their homes and businesses as fast as we can,” says Yellen.

You may remember Yellen from an episode of “Undercover Boss“, an experience he says helped him see what his employees go through and says they’re trying to reach out to employees more.  That episode has been nominated for an Emmy.
