Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Lackluster Results For Ohio’s Job Program
A report shows that Ohio’s new effort to find jobs for welfare recipients has fallen short.
The $66 million effort launched six months ago has so far come up with work for 257 Ohioans, and three-quarters are earning $10 or less. Of that number, just five were still employed after 90 days.
Half of the state’s 20 regional workforce boards trying to make placements have found no one a job according to the Jan. 24 report by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The Ohio Works Incentive Program was intended to help people get from welfare to work, but state officials acknowledge that initial results are underwhelming.
