Ga. officials reach out to former Hostess workers

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - State officials are reaching out to over 500 people who lost their jobs in the recent Hostess company liquidation.

Officials say 558 people in Georgia were impacted by the closure of Hostess Brands Inc. earlier this month.

The Governor's Office of Workplace Development and the Georgia Department of Labor are asking job seekers to visit their local department of labor career center for information on unemployment insurance.

Officials say job seekers will also find information on new jobs as they become available.

Aside from providing unemployment insurance, the organizations also provide job training and assistance through the Workforce Investment Act.
