As federal funds for work force training dry up, some companies
are finding they can’t find enough qualified workers. Atlas
Van Lines, for example, recently wanted to hire more than 100
truck drivers, but the local government-financed job center in
Louisville, KY, the company turned to for help was unable to
accommodate the company. The center’s funds designated to
help train new drivers were depleted, and the people interested
in the jobs could not afford the $4,000 classes to obtain
commercial driver’s licenses.
