‘Rapid Response’ meetings for Patriot Coal Corp. employees | News
A special program is available to employees of Patriot Coal Corporation’s Bluegrass Mine Complex in Henderson County, who will be laid off when the surface mine closes.

Staff from the Kentucky Career Center’s Green River office will present a “Rapid Response” program to help these employees find new jobs or receive training for new careers. These presentations will include information on key topics, such as:
