    Let's Talk Drug-Testing Welfare Recipients & Our Justice System

    in Lifestyle

    Recently, state legislators have been introducing legislation that require drug-testing people who receive public assistance, including welfare, unemployment, public housing and Medicaid. These bills are introduced by legislators based on the wrong belief that people who receive public assistance use drugs at a higher rate. This kind of drug testing is unconstitutional, scientifically unsound, fiscally irresponsible and one more way the "war on drugs" is an unfair war on America's most vulnerable populations.

    Mentoring in the Aerospace Industry

    in Business

    January is National Mentoring Month.  To celebrate the importance of mentorship WIA-Canada is collaborating with Ryerson University to bring together students pursuing careers in aerospace with women already in the field.  This is a time for Mentors and Mentees to come together and share resources. While it’s a women 217;s organization, men are always welcome.


     


    Mentoring can be challenging for a number of reasons – time commitment, compatibility between mentee and mentor, poorly defined expectations, lack of or too much structure, suitable location, etc.  Speed mentoring (similar to speed dating) allows for maximized exposure to several individuals in an informal but guided session that is conducive to asking questions, soliciting advice and exploring opportunities – no strings attached!


     


    The success of this program will depend heavily on mentor volunteers.  If you are interested in coming, to meet future generations of women in aerospace, to share your personal experiences and to help guide a student please register today.

    DON'T WORRY ABOUT HEALTHCARE

    in Politics Conservative

    YOU ARE LOSING YOUR COUNTRY. What does it matter if you lose your medical coverage?  Global worming created by Al Jazero Gore and George Soros the KGB INVESTOR. OK one degree either way every 500 years. Compared to 3.000 nuclear degrees tomorrow.Your house is underwater. You lost 50% of your stock value in 2008. Don't sweat it. It all belongs to the Chinese now. If two guys in the USA cash in their 401K they will start a run on the bunks. Don't worry about green and the endangered species. You are now on the list the taxpayer with no green. You know what you need. You need more school bills so you can become a doctor and take what Obama gives you. Obama says you can get to keep your undertaker. We can suport all this but not the troops. Did you ever ask yourself how their morale is? you know what is good for morale? A 100% increase in combat pay. Five million dollar KIA benefit. One million per loss of limb /vital organ. Now that is $upporting the troop$. Give them their country back. Instead of calling them NATO troops Call them AMERICANS. Is it time to review their prison sentences and pardon them like Clinton pardoned drug dealers and FLN terrorists. Maybe shorten sentences and reopen cases. Welcome home we missed you.

    Workforce System Response in Times of Disaster

    in Jobs

    Wednesday, December 18, 2013  


    1:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST


    Can WIA funds be leveraged to assist communities during and after disaster events? How can workforce development organizations provide innovative solutions as part of a disaster response?  On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the National Association of Workforce Boards, in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Disaster Management (CDM), released a new research report titled The Impact of Extreme Events on Business Organizations: Innovative Approaches to Managing Risk.  In this episode of Workforce Central Radio, NAWB CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Louise Comfort, the Director of the CDM and author of the report. Drawing on research interviews with nine innovative WIBs who showed leadership in their communities during disaster events, they will discuss the important role workforce boards can take in helping their areas during times of disaster, the policies that should be in place to help maximize efforts, and how they can leverage existing programs and become a bridge between federal disaster programs and municipal/local efforts.  Please join us on Wednesday, December 18th for this insightful interview!
