CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Forty-one former Hostess Brands Inc. workers in West Virginia are eligible for federal re-employment assistance.
They are among about 18,000 workers laid off by Hostess in 48 states.
The U.S. Department of Labor says the workers are eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance because increased imports of baked products contributed to the layoffs.
Workers who qualify for assistance can receive case management and re-employment services, training in new occupational skills and other benefits.
