CHARLESTON (WVDN) – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin, both members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, have announced $3,901,348 for West Virginia through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers Program. This funding will help the state of West Virginia provide training and employment services to eligible workers affected adversely by foreign trade.
“I’m pleased to see resources heading our way to help workers who have lost employment due to foreign trade. As our workforce and demands evolve, we must prioritize services like this that will help West Virginia strengthen our economy now and in the years to come,” said Capito.
“This funding from the Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers Program is welcome news for the Mountain State and will provide training, employment services and wage subsidies for workers who have lost their jobs due to foreign trade. I look forward to seeing the positive impacts of this investment and I will continue working tirelessly to support good-paying jobs in West Virginia,” said Manchin.
