Tennessee Works Act Passes Senate


A proposal to help Tennesseans get off unemployment and find a job has passed the state Senate. The "Tennessee Works Act" passed unanimously yesterday. The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the House Finance Committee. The bill creates a pilot program to provide employers with grants to pay for training expenses for recently laid-off workers or those whose jobs have gone overseas. In order to continue receiving the grant funds, employers agree to hire some of the employees trained.
