COOLIDGE — The Nikola Motor Company’s first hiring event in downtown Coolidge drew more than one hundred prospective employees on Saturday.
While the “meet and greet,” adjusted for pandemic safety protocols, brought people from different localities and backgrounds, a common theme was their feeling that Nikola represented a bright future for the area.
“This is the next wave of transportation,” said Manuel Ramirez, a Queen Creek resident who works in construction. “Everyone is hyped about this rejection of greenhouse gases, and I think it would be a great opportunity for the area to have a company do something tech-wise.”
