Laid off workers at the Altoona State Unemployment Call Center got a gift of $150 last week from State Senator Scott Wagner.

The money was handed out by Senator John Eichelberger Jr. and came with a note that said “I’m truly sorry that the layoffs are happening, especially at this time of year. I will continue to fight to get to the bottom of the disaster.”

Eichelberger has expressed confidence that the Altoona call center will reopen if and when Governor Wolf reaches an agreement on funding.
