Lemonis Offering Jobs To Furloughed Workers (1/11/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
Camping World Holdings Inc. Chairman Marcus Lemonis is tired of waiting on Washington to act on the government shutdown. He’s rallying his employees and others to help make a difference.
During a Jan. 8 live stream on Facebook, Lemonis launched a campaign to not only offer part-time work at his hundreds of dealerships and retail stores to furloughed park employees, but he also offered a considerable force of volunteers to help clean up parks in need.
“If you are watching this video and you work at a national park and you’re furloughed right now, I am offering some hours at our Camping World locations, our dealership locations our Gander locations around the country,” he says in the video. “Give you a couple hours here and there to try and fill in some of the gaps.”
In addition, Lemonis is also calling on park officials to leverage the volunteer activism that’s woven into his company’s culture. In 2013, Lemonis launched The Good Samaritan Program, which enables his team of more than 7,000 employees to enjoy 32 paid hours per year volunteering for causes they’re passionate about.
