A job training program created in Georgia is gaining national attention. President Barack Obama is expected to model his plan to help long-term unemployed Americans after it.
It's called the Georgia Works Program.
Caroline Garrett signed up for the program after a year of job hunting. "I was out of work for almost a year," says Garrett.
It gave her a chance to get paid to learn new skills. Garrett says as soon as the program ended she had 4 job interviews.
The Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce is one of more than 16,000 different employers across the state to sign up for the program.
