Rep. Fudge Comments on Unemployment Figures

“America’s unemployment rate is sobering, but the nation is slowly on the mend. This is evident in the many states where the unemployment rate is decreasing.  Ohio still has tough days ahead, but Ohioans are even tougher. Slowly, but surely the Greater Cleveland area will regain its economic momentum and vitality. Within Congress, my primary goal is to help Ohio’s families by supporting the creation of sustainable jobs and training opportunities in burgeoning industries. We must do all that we can to help hardworking Americans get back to work.”

“A portion of worker training is education. For individuals seeking financial assistance to fund their education, it is easier than ever to access federal student aid. In fact, the Departments of Labor and Education are working together to make the process even easier.”
