TOWN OF MENASHA - There is new help for the unemployed in the Fox Valley who need computer training.
The Fox Cities Workforce Development Center opened a new computer training lab Monday morning.
The lab will offer computer literacy classes on things like job searches and computer basics.
Workforce Development officials say they are critical skills many older laid-off workers will need to get back on the job.
"There are a lot of jobs where you have to apply online, so our lab here, our lab manager can help people through the different tricks of online application and just a lot of services that, we are always surprised but there are a lot of people that need them," said Jim Golembeski, Bay Area Workforce Development.
Officials say a similar lab in Green Bay is filled to capacity for classes each month.
