There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  An Assessment of the Low-Wage Worker Retention and Advancement Demonstration Project
Release Date :
Abstract :

The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration awarded grants to the Oregon Employment Department in 2002 and the California Employment Development Department in 2003 for the Low-Wage Worker Retention and Advancement Demonstration Project.  The evaluation of the grants investigated labor market approaches and service interventions that were developed to help low-wage workers, including former Temporary Assistance for Needy Families recipients, with employment retention and advancement and to assist employers in modifying policies and practices, which aid such workers.  The overall goal of the demonstration was to understand how One-Stop Career Centers can better assist workers who are in low-paying jobs and their employers.
