State gets $4.6 million to help with worker training
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The state has received $4.6 million in federal money to assist with worker training.
The grants announced Thursday will be used to help workers advance their education and develop skills in growing industries.
According to Gov. Jim Doyle’s office, the funding is in addition to $5.6 million received last year that provided training resources for about 33,000 workers.
The latest grant includes $3 million to help employers prepare workers for careers in clean energy, bioscience and health care.
It also includes $500,000 to help certain low-wage workers get additional training at technical colleges. Another $100,000 is earmarked to provide education and training for workers without a high-school diploma.
