The Office has awarded a $156,000 grant to Sid Wainer & Son to train over 150 workers and prepare for the creation of 10 new jobs in 2018.

The grant was awarded through the Office's Workforce Training Fund General Program, which is funded by unemployment insurance contributions and employers who pay directly into the fund.
