OSHKOSH, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The U-S Labor Department will spend $470,000 to help employees laid off by the Oshkosh Corporation train for new jobs. The funding will help re-train about 230 workers in the Oshkosh Defense division. It cut its military vehicle production as the U-S military was cutting its troop force in Afghanistan.

The re-training grant was given to the state. It will be administered by the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board, to provide training for high-demand occupations -- plus career counseling and help in finding potential jobs.

In April, Oshkosh said it was cutting about 700 hourly jobs, plus 60 salaried posts.
