Knabe to Highlight Successes of 10,000 Jobs Program

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe will be joined by Congresswoman Jane Harman, Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto, Redondo Beach Mayor Mike Gin, Hermosa Beach Mayor Michael DiVirgilio, and Manhattan Beach Mayor Mitch Ward at a press conference on Thursday, August 12 to highlight the success of Supervisor Knabe’s 10,000 jobs program and the need for the federal government to extend its funding to get Los Angeles County residents back to work.

On March 3, 2009, Supervisor Knabe introduced the 10,000 jobs program, which utilized almost $200 million in federal stimulus funds to create temporary subsidized employment opportunities through the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, resulting in over 11,000 jobs in private, public, and nonprofit businesses across LA County.
