ELKHART — About 50 job seekers attended a state-sponsored job fair over the weekend – compared with about 40 companies offering hundreds of positions.

“We just need bodies,” Smoker Craft line engineer Dave Thomas said, making his pitch outside North Side Gym, where WorkOne and The Elkhart Truth were hosting the event. “We have demand for about 50 boats a day, but we need the people.”
