More than seven million dollars will be coming to Missouri to help former TWA workers find new employment. Senators Bond and Talent says the money was requested by the state after American Airlines acquired TWA in a merger that heavily favored American and caused massive lay-offs at Lambert Airport in St. Louis, the headquaters of the failed TWA. Talent notes, though, that the money will be distributed widely throughout the state. The $7.4 Million will provide for job search assistance, job development, job placement, basic skills training, even counseling for those who lost their jobs in the merger.
