Now the Jobless Can Create Jobs

A new government program aims to help unemployed workers with entrepreneurship dreams start small businesses.

Last week the government released guidelines for Self-Employment Assistance programs, which are funded by a $35 million grant that will be shared by every state.

The programs will provide entrepreneur training and unemployment money to jobless Americans who want to launch start-ups.

“You have young people with real talent who have been denied opportunities or laid off through no fault of their own,” said Sen. Ron Wyden.

Five states have already launched Self-Employment Assistance programs, and the other states have until June 2013 to submit their applications.
