May 5, 2016 Issues: Helping Working Families

Youngstown, Ohio – Congressman Tim Ryan announces the certification petition for Trade Adjustment Assistance for Warren companies MSSL Wiring System, Inc. and Adecco Staffing.

“We are seeing more and more jobs moving overseas due to uneven playing fields and unfair trade policies. As we work to eliminate unfair advantages abroad and make sure that hardworking Americans are given the resources necessary to succeed in this global economy, we must also make sure we are helping those impacted in the present,” said Congressman Ryan “I am pleased that MSSL Wiring System, Inc. and Adecco Staffing employees, who lost their jobs through no fault of their own, will now be able to access the services they need to help them land on their feet.” 

The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program is a federal program that assists US workers who have lost their jobs as a result of foreign trade. The program provides trade-affected workers with opportunities to obtain the skills, resources, and support they need to become reemployed. For example, Trade Readjustment Allowances will provide income support while workers are participating in full-time training, which may include classroom and/or on the-job training, customized training, post-secondary education, prerequisite education or coursework and remedial education. The cost of training is paid to the training provider by the State with TAA Program funds. In addition, the Health Care Tax Credit makes health insurance more affordable for trade-affected workers by paying 72.5% of health insurance premiums.
