SEATTLE -- The Labor Department announced a $1.5 million grant Thursday to help about 520 workers laid off from Washington state agencies.
They include workers from state liquor stores that have been closed as well as workers that have been released at state prisons and other agencies because of spending cuts.
The money will pay for training and support services to help the workers find new jobs.
