(KMOV) – Senator Claire McCaskill urged local unemployed workers of all skill sets to learn about how Slate, a St. Louis organization can help get them back to work.
According to McCaskill, many of the 47 federal workforce training programs confused unemployed workers. The senator praised Slate, encouraging workers of all skill sets to go to Slate and connect with employment and training.
“Whether you are a skilled professional that has been displaced or whether you’re somebody who doesn’t have their GED, you can walk in the door here and learn what is available. You can figure out whether you have the skill set for the jobs that are available and they’ll move you toward an existing job training program that will allow you to get that skill set you need,” said McCaskill.
