The Lufkin job assistance market will be affected by the sequester if a budget deal is not met by March1st.
According to the White House,
Texas will lose over $2.5 million in funding for assisting people with
finding jobs. That translates into 83,000 fewer people getting help or
training when it comes to looking for a new career.
Workforce Solutions of Deep East
Texas is prepared for any cuts they experience.
"The big differences with
these cuts is that they have already been allocated for this year, taking it
out of this year's budget. Right now we don't have plans to cut services or cut
hours," said Marilyn Hartsook, interim director of Workforce Solutions of Deep
Fallout to any more budget cuts
would be closing smaller centers. If this happened, people in the smaller areas
such as Center would have to drive to Lufkin or Nacogdoches for help.
