Workforce

While a bachelor's degree isn't the only path to a good job, a new report says Illinois could use some more well-paid, blue-collar jobs.

A Federal Grant totalling $608,466 has been awarded to the Southern Illinois Collegiate Common Market to help older workers ease back into the workforce.  WSIU's Kevin Boucher recently spoke to the Grants Coordinator, Tracy Norris about how this money will impact southern Illinois.
