Florida job Opps for Parents:
Job Opps in Gainesville:
“Unveiled last week, the “Florida Back to Work” program will provide as much as $200 million statewide to cover as much as 95 percent of the wages, benefits and training of temporary workers who meet income criteria. The state estimates that the Florida Back to Work program will create up to 25,478 jobs, with an average hourly wage of $12.
County Manager Randall Reid compared the program to the Works Progress Administration that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt launched during the Great Depression.
The state program is intended to aid unemployed or low-income individuals with children. To receive funding through it, government agencies and private companies must hire employees that have at least one child under age 18 and have a household income below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.”
Green Drinks Hosts White House Community Jobs Forum Jan. 6
These Jobs Forums are being held around the country and we’ll provide local feedback for the president to consider. There are six questions about which sectors of the economy are working, expanding, hiring and which aren’t; what are local opportunities for job growth; what are local obstacles; etc. If this interests you, please come prepared with your comments – or share them with us here online - particularly about green jobs.
Our meeting will be sponsored by Project Nepal, a foundation that provides educational materials to students in Nepal. Edmund and Sargit Kellerman will provide Indian and Malaysian dinner of Murktha and Chana Curry with basmati rice and amazing Malaysian tea for a suggested donation of $7 to $10. Cash bar.
Mr. Kellerman will tell us about Project Nepal, and Steve Nichtenberg of Lux will tell us about his erforts to create a sustainable business. Afterward, we’ll convene the White House Community Jobs Forum for those who’d like to contribute.
