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

WIA Participants by Program PY-2004-2008

The number of participants in the WIA Adult program more than doubled between Program Years (PY) 2004 and 2005. The number of individuals served by other WIA programs (Dislocated, Older Youth and Younger Youth) decreased during the same time period.

As shown in the table below, the trend of large increases in Adult numbers continued through PYs 2006-2008 growing annually at 63%, 62% and 84%, respectively. Dislocated Worker participants increased as well between PYs 2004-2008.  These increases are largely due to changes in co-enrollment policies regarding the collection of self-service information, which started in PY 2005.  Participant numbers in the Older and Younger Youth programs declined consistently between PYs 2004 - 2007, but saw an increase of approximately 10% and 7%, respectively in PY 2008.
