EXCEP and its Hiring Our Miners Everyday (H.O.M.E.) program will help fund wages for on-the-job training for out-of-work miners.
Employers would agree to hire H.O.M.E. participants for permanent jobs and would be provided 50 to 70 percent of the workers’ wages while they are being trained. The jobs should pay $12 or more per hour.
More than 800 out-ofwork miners and their spouses from eastern Kentucky are enrolled in H.O.M.E. For more information, call 1-855-466-3690.
