BOSTON (CBS) -Twenty-eight Massachusetts companies are splitting $2 million in workforce training grants.
The grants are funded entirely by Massachusetts companies. Nancy Snyder of the Commonwealth Corporation says much of the training is usually geared toward helping companies solve problems they may have, or helping workers develop the skills companies need.
