Job Training Alone Doesn't Create Jobs
July 29, 2010 | By Evelyn Ganzglass | The New York Times | Link to article
A recent article in the New York Times series The New Poor focused on unemployed workers who are, after training, still scrambling for employment. The article examined federally financed training programs and reported that many who complete these programs still struggle to find jobs. The New York Times published reader responses to the article, including a letter to the editor by Evelyn Ganzglass, CLASP director of workforce development, noting that job training alone does not create jobs and workers with the most education and training are less likely to be unemployed in the first place.
