    • On June 25, 2013, by milton6994 - There are already plenty of job training/retraining programs available now (state and federal), including ESL and other language assistance. This appears to create more bureaucracy and increases the size and scope of the federal government. It unnecessarily increase spending when we should be cutting everything to the bone.
