Workplace Issues Today: Detroit to benefit for Department of Labor green jobs plan

A newly announced $4.3 million jobs grant could help retrain unemployed workers in Detroit for jobs in so-called green industries. The grant, part of a nationwide plan announced Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Labor, would aid workers in finding jobs in the burgeoning energy efficiency field, and would provide a much-needed salve to a city that has been among the hardest-hit by the recent recession. The grant targets minorities, women and veterans in a bid to give workers the skills needed to compete with China, India, and other countries.
