Labor Market Demands
Dear Sir or Madam:
As you may know, the Northwest Georgia region is experiencing an increasing number of layoffs. In the last fourteen months, the area has seen over 3000 displaced workers as a result of massive company layoffs and closures. This number does not include layoffs from smaller companies. Several more are predicted to take place between now and the end of the year.
Because of these layoffs and closures, there is an urgent need for new programs to assist these workers. We are also interested in determining how youth (low income at risk population) can be better served in the area. The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) was established to provide assistance to individuals in need of job training and placement, and to employers in need of skilled workers. WIA provides programs for adults, displaced workers, and youth. Federal money is available to workers for training through these programs and to employers who train them. The Workforce Investment Board is researching industries to determine specific training needs. We would like your insight and input into new or expanding industries in your county or service area during the next three year period. What special needs will they have and/or what training would they like to see available for the potential workforce.
Please take the time to review the questionnaire and provide the information for your area. Your assistance in this is greatly appreciated. We will provide you with the report once it is completed.
