I think the Somali Link Newspaper is an excellent publication for the Somali community. I also believe that the programs they have implemented within the community are very beneficial to those just arriving to this city. However, I was recently an employee of the Somali Link and I find Mr. Taakilo to be a very shady business man who is only concerned about things that will directly benefit him. As the Director of Marketing (nice title) it was my responsibility to generate advertising sales for the paper and for doing so i would receive a base salary plus commission. As I sit and type this blog today I am still owed 3 weeks of my base salary inwhich Mr. Taakilo is attempting not to pay even going as far as to ban me from the office for persuing compensation. Stating he will see what he can do. I'm sorry but after the miles and hours I put in coupled with the very very low pay. I'll see what I can do isn't enough. Therefore until I am compenstated I will do everything within my power to let my community, county, city, and state if need be the type of individual Mr. Taakilo is.

How can Your Business benefit from the Somali and African Community?

1. It??s a new and unique market of immigrants; be the first to establish your business identity, image and involvement within the community and you can the first to win their loyalty and trust.

2. A large and growing community; the Somali community is estimated to be at 75,000 (the Somali Chamber of Commerce) and 700 new Somali families will be entering the US in 2009.

3. As shopper, buyers and consumers, the Somali and African people have wants and needs that are similar to everyone else.
