LYNNWOOD — The U.S. Department of Labor announced Monday that it plans to spend $1.6 million to help laid-off Boeing workers around Puget Sound find new jobs.
Boeing has issued more than 1,000 layoff notices so far this year, and more are expected in the coming months.
The Labor Department plans to use the money to pay for job training and other services, and to open a job service center in Lynnwood for affected Boeing workers. The center will offer career services, apprenticeship information sessions and short-term skills workshops, according to a news release from the Labor Department.
