This iReport is part of an assignment:
How Will This Work Again?
Each individual had to be in a specified room by a specific time or you were listed as noncompliant and sent home. Transportation was no excuse and many bus systems didn’t run that early. While there they trained people how to word their applications so that it sounded like you had experience in a more appealing way so that your applications would not be immediately tossed in the round file. They also taught people to leave no question unanswered. People were then taught to put in their applications on a computer. They actually spent one week teaching people how to talk and conduct themselves during interviews. They provided one complete outfit from a second hand store for those that needed it. This was the extent of their training for a job.
The same problems of the 1990’s have not changed. Most of the “new jobs” on the government books were set aside for new immigrants and not for the legal Americans living in the United States today. The only ones that will benefit from this type of so called job training will be the new immigrants in the United States today, not the people already living in America for some years now.
Re-training is more than teaching people how to fill out paperwork and how to talk to people. Re-training means actually training individuals how to do something different from what they had been doing to begin with. This entails having companies and corporations prepared to train people from the ground floor up; with the promise of a job at the end of training. This is what I had expected back in the 1990’s and it did not happen; I seriously doubt anything has changed since then. Eventually the program was dropped because it didn’t work and here we are again with the same empty promises.
Just out of curiosity, would the government like to explain to the American people just how this will work again?
