Microsoft and unemployed textile workers

Microsoft will teach unemployed textiles workers how use a computer. Changing from textiles to computers, this is the idea behind the project Technology, Innovation and Initiative “Tecnology, inovação e iniciative” that originated from a partnership between Microsoft and Citeve.
The project will be administered in the cities of Famalicão, Guimarães, Porto and Covilhã, places that in the recent years have been hard struck by unemployment as a result of closing textile factories that either moved to Easter European countries or cold not longer compete with Chinese textile imports. The project pretends to train around 1500 jobless per year thou no public money “subsidies” will be offered.
