Choices for the unemployed

No worker left behind.

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm is proposing a new program that would teach laid-off workers a new trade.

The goal is to place 100-thousand workers in high-demand health care and alternative fuel jobs within the next three years.

The program would offer free tuition at a community college or technical school.

Granholm wants about 40-million dollars from the state's general fund but that may be difficult given Michigan’s budget problems.

Republicans do not want to use state money to pay for the project.
