New Educational Opportunities For Unemployed Workers

Dept. of Labor

Americans with more education and training have more secure jobs and higher earnings. To help unemployed workers and our country move forward, the President announced steps to end the rules that discourage displaced workers from getting the education and training they need to find and fill the jobs of the future.

In addition to the federal financial aid offered by the U.S. Department of Education, there may be opportunities for either unemployed or low-wage job workers from the State of Michigan.
