The Jobless are Screwed as Funding for Retraining Dries Up

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 18, 2012 9:21 am

The Labor Department announced on Friday that employers had added only 120,000 new jobs in March, a disappointing gain after three previous months of nearly twice that level. But with 12.7 million people still searching for jobs, the country is actually spending less on work force training than it did in good times.

As nearly 13 million Americans look for a job, federal funding to retrain American workers and prepare them for the jobs of the 21st century are drying up.

However, multi-millionaire Congressman Paul Ryan's Republican trickle-down austerity budget once again slashes funding for federal job retraining programs.

Under their proposal, it's far more important to give $3-trillion in tax breaks to the super-rich than give working Americans new job skills.
