Displaced Northern Engraving workers get help

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The U.S. Labor Department has approved $438,000 in assistance for former workers of the Northern Engraving Corp. plant in Waukon.

The Sparta, Wis.-based company was the second largest employer in Waukon with 207 workers when it closed the plant in August. The company makes nameplates and other decorative products for electronics and automobiles.

The labor department awarded the grant to Iowa Workforce Development, which will provide former Northern Engraving workers with help, including skills assessment, basic skills training, career counseling and occupational skill training.
