ST. PAUL — About 100,000 people across Minnesota applied for unemployment this past week, according to the state’s Department of Employment and Economic Development.

That number continue to grow as more applications pour into the agency.

It comes in response to Gov. Tim Walz’s executive order March 16 calling for a wide range of businesses to close in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

While that’s put a lot of people out of work, there are some companies across the state with jobs available.

Here’s a list of companies that are hiring or will soon be hiring:
