South Bay

The South Bay Service Delivery Area, an eight-city consortium that provides jobs and training for the unemployed, has received a $1 million contract from Northrop Corp., which has agreed to train and hire about 150 people in the area.

Most of the jobs will be at Northrop's Hawthorne facilities, and will include such entry-level positions as stock clerks, timekeepers, office clerks, data clerks and structural assembler trainees.

The South Bay Service Delivery Area administers the program as part of the 1983 federal Job Training Partnership Act, and covers the cities of Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach and Gardena.
