Job seekers and businesses get access to employment and job training resources
LOS ANGELES, March 30, 2011 -- In the midst of proposed major cuts to federally-funded Workforce Investment Act (WIA) employment and job training programs, the L.A. County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) is launching the first Southern California Workforce Development Month in April 2011. Joining in this inaugural effort are 15 other WIBs in the region, along with the Greater L.A. Chamber of Commerce. Together they will promote Southern California's workforce development system and One-Stop Career Centers through targeted job seeker and business events and resources. The L.A. County Board of Supervisors have been asked to proclaim April 2011 as Workforce Development Month and to urge all 88 cities in L.A. County, as well as local elected officials in all of Southern California, to join the cause.
