a. 1. Describe how the State will staff the provision of labor exchange services under the Wagner-Peyser Act, such as through State employees, including but not limited to state merit staff employees, staff of a subrecipient, or some combination thereof.

Current Narrative:

The state will staff the provision of labor exchange services under the Wagner-Peyser Act through  state merit staff employees.  Generally, Wagner-Peyser staff are the first staff customers see when coming into a career center.  Wagner-Peyser staff complete an initial assessment through a seated one-on-one interview.  Wagner-Peyser staff are trained to recognize clients, including UI claimants, needing credentials, education and training services and/or resources in order to acquire skills leading to high demand, high wage career paths. They are also trained to provide referral and application assistance to customers as they navigate through the system to reach their reemployment goal.
