Nexus Services plans to add 200 jobs in 2018
Verona-based Nexus Services said Thursday it plans to add 200 workers nationwide throughout 2018, doubling its workforce. The company also will implement 5 percent raises in January.
Nexus is a family of companies and charities offering migrants services. Libre by Nexus releases undocumented immigrants from detention by guaranteeing bonds and GPS tracking technology.
Nexus says an improved business outlook and tax reform by U.S. Congress has enabled the expansion. On Wednesday, a $1.5 trillion Republican tax overhaul passed Congress, which includes plans to drop the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent.
“While the tax reduction for individuals are not that substantial, we at Nexus thought that we could share the gains from the deep corporate tax cuts with our both current employees and our new hires,” Nexus CEO Mike Donovan said in a statement.
According to Nexus, many of the new jobs will be created in the Shenandoah Valley. New positions also will be available in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Hackensack, N.J., and Ontario, Canada; in addition to other sites.
Nexus says the new jobs will have a “living wage” and provide full benefits including, health, dental, vision, and retirement plans.
