The Navajo people are an enthusiastic and very capable labor pool. Jobs are highly prized.
Basha’s, a supermarket chain based in Arizona, operates stores on the reservation. Owner Eddie Basha says, “A percentage of our profits on the Navajo Nation is returned for redevelopment and education, and we make an annual donation to the Navajo Education Scholarship Fund. We were honored to have been invited to the Navajo Nation as their grocery retailer in 1981, and we look forward to a continuing healthy association.”
Adaptability and Dedication
