BOISE, ID. – Laid-off workers from Nampa’s XL Four Star Beef can get federal help to retrain. The U.S. Labor Department has awarded up to two million dollars Monday to help.
Bob Fick, a spokesman for Idaho’s Labor Department, says the money can be used for education, including language courses.
Fick: Large majority of the workers at XL Four Star were not fluent in English. Getting them fluent in English will be a major help in finding them new employment.
