Michigan Hiring 500 Social Workers

Michigan is recruiting 500 social workers for its child welfare department, according to this Lansing State Journal article.

The economically troubled state is able to hire these workers due to savings when 1,000 state workers retired early, the article said. Michigan is also under a court order to improve its foster child and child protection services.

The social worker jobs will pay¬†$38,700 to $49,400 annually for those with bachelor’s degrees or up to $57,300 for people with master’s degrees, the article said.
