August 21 - August 25, 2017

The Department of Labor is currently seeking applications for its annual Susan Harwood Training Grants program, which funds worker-safety training conducted by nonprofits like employer associations and unions. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta has discussed eliminating this program in the future. Should the Harwood Grants go?

No. Associations, unions and schools know the best methods for training workers, and might supply information some employers leave out. The government should continue to assist them in doing so.
Yes. Employers are already responsible for training their workers on safety; this $10.5 million expenditure is a waste.
Other (please explain in the comments section).
