Boy, there is an oxymoron! This department, since its creation, has only watched hundreds of thousands of jobs and economic growth leave the state!
The budget increases to $1.3 billion, a 5.6% increase. It includes the "No Worker Left Behind" program, an invention of the Governor. It provides education grants (free college) to "displaced workers". If you worked for GM and got laid off after 20 years, you get a free education, if you are a hard-working student, trying to put yourself through college...sorry, "no soup for YOU!"
