  U.S. Department of Labor Launches Re-employment Partnership in Mississippi to Help Hurricane Katrina Evacuees

    U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao today announced an expanded partnership with Manpower Inc., a Fortune 500 company that provides employment services to organizations, to help Mississippi workers displaced by Hurricane Katrina find new jobs. The initiative will leverage the resources and reach of One-Stop Career Centers and Manpower Inc. to deliver employment and training services that meet evacuees' long-term career needs. "I've met with Gov. Barbour, Sen. Cochran and Sen. Lott on plans to rebuild Mississippi's economy to provide more new opportunities for Mississippians," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao. "This partnership that we're announcing today will help deliver one-on-one, state-of-the-art employment services that will match displaced Mississippi workers with opportunities in growing industries where the demand for employees is high." The partnership will target areas with high concentrations of displaced Mississippians. These Mississippi evacuees will receive "Career Success Cards" certifying them for employment with Manpower and giving them access to employment opportunities through Manpower or One-Stop Career Center offices. A "Coming Home Portfolio" of available resources and services also will be developed to promote re-employment in high growth, high demand career opportunities in Mississippi. These efforts are patterned after an approach that produced positive results in Florida last year.
