Sen. Art Linares was briefed on programs which help area residents get quality jobs during the Workforce Alliance Luncheon held April 5 at the Westbrook Elks Lodge.

“One of my top priorities as state senator is to help job-seekers to learn strategies and tools that help them become re-employed,” Sen. Linares said. “One reason businesses are not hiring is because people are not properly trained for the jobs that are available. The Workforce Alliance helps train individuals for sustainable careers right here in Connecticut.”

The Workforce Alliance (www.workforcealliance.biz) aims to help develop the workforce and help the unemployed get re-employed. It operates work centers in Hamden, New Haven, and Meriden and conducts outreach to suburban areas to help and support older adults and ex-managers left unemployed by the difficult economic times.
