Special assistance has been approved for more than 350 Micron Technology workers laid off in Idaho since August of 2012 because of foreign competition; the Idaho Department of Labor announced today that the workers are eligible for special job assistance under the Trade Adjustment Program. That includes no-cost retraining, expenses related to job-hunting, relocation expenses and some additional benefits after regular state unemployment benefits are exhausted. The aid also will be available to any additional workers laid off from Micron through 2015; click below for the full Department of Labor announcement.
