Two-Year Anniversary of No Worker Left Behind’ Program celebrated 

LANSING, July 31, 2009: In last week’s radio address, Governor Jennifer M. Granholm said that the month of August marks the two-year anniversary of Michigan ’s No Worker Left Behind job-training program.  Almost 82,000 people have taken advantage of the program.

“Our goal two years ago for No Worker Left Behind was to enroll 100,000 people in training,” Granholm said.  “I’m proud to say we will meet and surpass that goal.”

No Worker Left Behind was created in 2007 by the Granholm administration to help Michigan workers obtain the skills they need for good-paying jobs in a changing economy.

“Through the No Worker Left Behind program, people who are unemployed or need to improve their skills can get the college degree or certification necessary for a new job,” Granholm said.  “Training is focused on occupations in high demand or in emerging industries.  People also can learn how to start their own business.”

“No Worker Left Behind provides up to $5,000 a year for two years of tuition at any Michigan community college, university or other approved training program,” Granholm continued.  “That means up to $10,000 for tuition.”

“The first step toward a new career is visiting your local Michigan Works! agency or the No Worker Left Behind Web site, which is michigan.gov/nwlb,” Granholm said.  “As we transition to a greener, more diversified Michigan economy, we want to make sure no worker’s left behind.”

The governor’s weekly radio address is released each Friday morning and may be heard on broadcast stations across the state.  The address is available on the governor’s Web site at (www.michigan.gov/gov) for download, together with a clip of the quote above. 

The radio address is also available as a podcast on the Web site, as well as on iTunes and via RSS feed for general distribution to personal MP3 players and home computers.
