Starting Over

Retraining Programs: How much do we spend on them? Are they are working?

Inside E Street takes a hard look with Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis at the billions of federal dollars being spent on retraining programs, what elements make them a success or failure on a personal level, as well as on the state and federal level. Recent studies on the impact of re-training programs are disheartening in terms of direct bang for the buck, but we will also explore the long term positive effects of keeping skills updated, broadening working talents and tools, and following the future professionally in mid-life. Also, a personal look at the challenges when your work world changes overnight.  In the wake of the BP oil spill, we hear from a fifth generation Islenos fisherman who has packed up his shrimp nets and replaced them with oil skimming equipment in a desperate effort to save his livelihood and his lifeline.
