Meanwhile, just over the mountains in North Carolina
State government is investing in community college retraining for unemployed adults. That's refreshing. Greensboro Technical Community College is one of the institutions participating. From The Greensboro News-Record.
GTCC will retrain workers for free
GTCC is recruiting unemployed residents for free training that could have them in jobs within months.
The college is among several community colleges in the state to get money from the N.C. General Assembly to help put the long-term unemployed back to work in new careers.
GTCC received $880,000 as part of the state’s new Back-to-Work program. The college is now recruiting students for the program, which will end June 30.
The General Assembly this year gave a total of $5 million to the community college system to train people who have been out of work for a long time. GTCC was one of 10 schools to receive money.
