There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

There was a further increase to 2,337,775 in PY 2006.  The number of Adult participants rose in PY 2005 and 2006.  The number of Dislocated Worker participants rose in PY 2006.  The Older Youth and Younger Youth programs experienced a decline during each program year covered by this chart.  The Adult program accounted for most of the total increase, and the increase may be attributed to some states including counts of participants who access self-service only.
