Job training programs set to receive some of L.A.'s federal stimulus money

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa today announced that the city is making $10.3 million in federal stimulus money available for worker training programs.

The grants will be issued by the Community Development Department. Of the $10.3 million, $4 million will be used for vocational training for 1,000 workers and $6.3 million will be available to train an estimated 2,000 people for high-wage jobs in healthcare, construction, transportation and other sectors.

Villaraigosa said the city has received $43.7 million in job training funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act so far, and between $300 million and $400 million in overall stimulus money.

How about an accounting of how that 300-400 million has been spent so far.


Thanks.

Most of it will go to illegals so they can stay here illegally. He's hispanic. Let's see: cross the border (illegal) , forge documents (illegal). Drain money from the city and then just because there are so many other illegals - whoosh - get some stimulus money to train them. Sick. And since these comments have to be approved, this probably won't appear because we can't be too harsh on the illegals. Drain away....suck the life out of the state.

WOW, 3-400 MILLION THE CITY HAS RECEIVED! WHERE HAS IT BEEN SPENT AND ON WHAT? SO FAR, I AM STILL WAITING FOR SANITATION TO PICK UP THE PALM TREE LEAVES THAT WERE BLOWN DOWN THROUGHOUT MY NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THE HIGH WINDS. I KNOW MY COUNCILMAN, HERB WESSON, DID NOT GET ANY OF THESE FUNDS FOR HIS DISTRICT!
