Am I eligible for help from the program “Feds help laid off workers’.
Q) I’m an aircraft Liaison Engineer.I was laid off from Boeing Everett after working on contract on the 787 program for four and a half years. I live in King County and would like to find out if I eligible for any help from the program described in the Seattle Times headed “Feds help laid off workers’. My local worksource office know nothing about it. I would appreciate it if you can direct me to where I find out my status on this issue. I can send you a copy of the article. Many thanks, Mike B*****.
A) According to the article in on Seattle Times“Thanks to a federal program lined up by their unions, local workers laid off during the current dip in employment at Boeing Commercial Airplanes will enjoy a financial cushion that’s much, much plumper than what the average unemployed state resident gets.” You need to contact your local union regarding your benefits in the program.
