    Liberals use government to help their friend and punish their enemies.
    I'd like to see these companies and their owners campaign funding.

    Why is taxpayer money being spent on such ambiguous training?\

    The explanation given is like saying "We are training employees to work".

    This is an absolute waste of taxpayer money under the guise of a useful excerise and one wonder who knows who to get it approved.

    But hey, who cares, right? It's JUST $321k. When you get your tax increase (Yes, everyone, not just fat cats" got a $1265 Social security tax increase Janu 1, be sure to thank your government and it's useless spending on things like this.

    Agree with barbtender 100% this is a sick display of how politicians give away our money. No wonder my paycheck was smaller this week.

    Management should have the knowledge of what skills are required to perform a certain job on the line and be able to explain processes to the employees. My question is, what other skills can't management attend to? It seems to be largely teaching English and communication. The catch and release program worked very well for business. The taxpayer now can help out, thank you.
