On Oct. 24, Hoffer Plastics Corp, our 2011 Plastics News Processor of the Year, was featured on the PBS NewsHour program for its efforts to train workers to be prepared for manufacturing jobs.

Check out the report. It's about the WorkKeys program, something I've highlighted before in The Plastics Blog.

And for more on Hoffer Plastics, check our Bill Bregar's profile of the company from March 2013.
