This article reports that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) created the "Pathways to Employment" initiative to help evacuees and other survivors of the recent hurricanes find employment and training opportunities. It provides targeted assistance to people based on individual needs through the nation wide network of 3,500 One-Stop Career Centers across the country. Reintegration counselors will be deployed for up to six months in areas with high concentrations of evacuees. They will expand the capacity of One-Stop Career Centers. A total of $15 million will go toward this effort. To help people with disabilities, the DOL will deploy additional Disability Program Navigators in hurricane-affected states. They will help individuals make employment connections.
