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

Women Served By WIA Programs - PY 2005-2007

Over 1.1 million women have been served by Workforce Investment Act programs from Program Year 2005-2007.  The total for PY 2006 was 187,378.  The total for PY 2006 was 517,409, and the total for PY 2007 was 416,778.  For the three program years, the total served by the WIA Adult program was 653,425.  The total served by the Dislocated Worker program was 316,740 for the same period.  The Younger Youth program served a total of 108,430 in the three program years.  A total of 42,970 women was served by the Older Youth program in the same period.

(The data are from WIA State annual reports.  The large increase after PY 2005 is mostly due to an increase in the WIA Adult figures, and this is due partly to co-enrollment in other programs.)
