The Government's $11 Billion Jobs Program May Not Work
Figuring out the best way to put unemployed people back to work is one of the holy grails of today's political and policy debates. The federal government has spent more than $11 billion since the onset of the Great Recession in an effort to retrain workers or to give them new skills through the Workforce Investment Act. The only problem? Lawmakers do not know if that money has been well spent, or if it's even helped people.
