AFL-CIO Already Wary Of Possible Obama Job Proposal

Post by Guest on Sun Sep 04, 2011 8:25 am

The administration has hinted it is interested in replicating a Georgia program that lets businesses train jobless workers for eight weeks without having to pay them on a national scale. The program, called Georgia Works, is voluntary for businesses and workers and is only open to recipients of unemployment insurance.

"I am writing to convey the AFL-CIO's continuing and serious concerns about the existing Georgia Works program and any expansion of the Georgia Works model," AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka wrote in a Thursday letter to U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.

"I am also requesting that the Department investigate the Georgia Works program to determine whether it is in compliance with federal law and conduct a full audit and evaluation of the program's operations to determine its impact on workers and their communities," Trumka continued.
