Hundreds of Jobs Cut

A few hundred folks in East will soon be out of work. A National Emergency Grant that allowed Workforce Solutions to hire many East Texans who were out of work shortly after the hurricanes is coming to an end.

Employees were notified Friday they will no longer have a job as of June 2nd. Funds have run out from the emergency grant.  

"We've been talking to the employers for the past two days, telling them the grant was coming to an end. We've been getting a lot of good feedback and how it was able to help them get over the hump during this time. Of course all of us were disappointed the money just flat ran out," says Jon Bunn.

Workforce Solutions is working to find other jobs for those affected.
