Idaho gets grant for worker retraining

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho is getting more than $675,000 to help retrain workers who have been out of work for more than 27 weeks. The U.S. Department of Labor announced the grant this week — part of a $58 million package dispersed to 30 states. The grants will support unemployed workers seeking to get training or industry certifications, enroll in apprentice programs or other training that can lead to jobs. The federal agency awarded the money on each state's ability to meet certain guidelines. Idaho got the second smallest amount, while Texas won the biggest amount at $4.4 million.
