From Time Warner Cable's Michael Scotto:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Across the country, some 12 million people are looking for work.
Another eight million people are working part-time because they can't find full-time employment. The economy, though, isn't entirely to blame.
"We have a very high unemployment rate, but we also have jobs that go begging everyday because people don't have the skills," North Carolina Representative Virginia Foxx said.
Congresswoman Virginia Foxx says part of the problem is that workers can't navigate the maze of job training programs offered by the Federal Government. So she is working to push through a bill this week that would consolidate 35 programs into one.
Foxx said, "The federal government often puts out these one size fits all programs and they simply don't work in the 50 states and the thousands of localities across the country."
