The Bottom Line: New Job Training Program For 2014

Dec 6, 2013

Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for a weekly business segment we're calling "The Bottom Line." Each Friday they look at business news and themes that affect local business and the public.

This week Dave and Mark talk with Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training Director Charles Fogarty. They discuss new jobless figures, reaction to pushback over the new bi-weekly wage requirements, and details about a pilot job training program, called “Back to Work, Rhode Island.” The program is scheduled to start in January. It will allow people to collect unemployment benefits while going through unpaid job training at companies.
