The Trade Adjustment Assistance Program, established by President Kennedy, provides help to workers who have lost their jobs because of increased competition from imports. The assistance has included wage and health insurance support, training, aid in search for jobs, and contributions to relocation expenses. More than 2000 workers in Maine and nearly 250,000 nationally are currently benefiting from the program, but . . . the program expired at the beginning of February! The panel will discuss the positive contributions by the program and the need to reauthorize it for the future, given the pressures on domestic jobs from foreign competition.
The panel took place on Tuesday, February 22 at 7PM in Ostrove Auditorium.
Cosponsored by the International Studies Program
