Participants in sectoral employment workforce development programs – industry-specific training and placement for unemployed and underskilled workers – earned about $4,500(18 percent) more than those in the control group, and were more likely to find employment, work more consistently, work in jobs that paid higher wages, and work in jobs that offered benefits.
