The Nation

November 13, 1986

The Labor Department picked six states to test a Canadian system for helping workers displaced by mass layoffs and plant closings to find new jobs. The states of Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Vermont will get $20,000 each to establish committees to arrange new employment at companies anticipating plant closings or layoffs in the next year. The committees will be modeled on those established by the Canadian Industrial Adjustment Service, a government agency with a record of finding new jobs--usually within a year--for 66 of every 100 workers displaced by plant closings.
