With an aging population, a Northern Wisconsin company that employs personal care workers says they are looking to hire.

North Country Independent Living, which has an office in Superior's Mariner Mall, serves people in eight Wisconsin counties. They want to empower people with disabilities, and keep their clients as independent as possible. 

"Our mission and our goal is to have people stay in their homes and be a part of their community," said Gloria Hakkila-Johnson, an assistant director with the company.

On Thursday, they had on-the-spot interviews to try and recruit much-needed staff. 

Hakkila-Johnson said it is particularly difficult being in a border town, because Minnesota has a better reimbursement rate, meaning people's wages are higher there.
