The U-S Department of Labor approved a grant Wednesday that will provide funds for employment and training services for 337 workers affected by recent layoffs at the Lordstown General Motors plant.

On January 17, 2017, General Motors laid off more than 1,200 employees at the Lordstown plant. Hundreds more workers from three other auto suppliers also lost their jobs because of the cutbacks.

Sen. Sherrod Brown is fighting back against what he believes are unethical overdraft fees.

Brown teamed up with fellow Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey to introduce the bill called the Stop Overdraft Profiteering Act of 2018, which Brown said would crack down on certain fees that mostly affect low-income Americans.

Vice President Mike Pence visited Cincinnati Tuesday to promote Trump administration policies.

The program at the Weston Hotel was officially about tax reforms, but Pence also plugged efforts to improve foreign trade, revamp immigration policies, and improve the economy.

"But the people of Ohio deserve to know, quite frankly, we've done it all in the face of unprecedented obstruction and opposition by liberals in Washington D.C," he told the crowd.
