Auto Worker Aid
(2008-06-06)
(wgvu) - The Labor Department says it's providing a
$6.6 million grant to Michigan to help workers affected by closures
and layoffs in the auto industry.
Labor Secretary Elaine Chao says the grant is aimed at helping
workers affected by downsizing in the industry to find new jobs.
The department says it will provide an initial release of $2.475
million for training and counseling.
The department says affected workers who've been certified as
eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance may receive up to 2 years
of income support, a health coverage tax credit and help finding a
job.
Deputy director of Michigan's Department of Labor and Economic
Growth Andy Levin says the grant will help jobless workers acquire
the skills they need for in-demand jobs.
