Getting People Back to Work
White, Frances L.
Community College Journal, v74 n2 p44-47 Oct-Nov 2003
Getting people back to work has become a national concern. The nation's economy lost jobs as of July 2003 for six months in a row, dealing another blow to a slow reviving labor market. According to the Labor Department, 486,000 jobs disappeared from the economy. And, the Employment Development Department in California reported a decline of 21,800 jobs for the month of July with a prediction for 46,000 additional jobs to be lost by mid-2004. These facts point to a slow turnaround in the economy with many people still experiencing the pains of joblessness. In this article, the author describes how the Airport Project of Skyline Community College in San Mateo County, California, joins forces with area industries to supply highly trained workers.
