The Mississippi Department of Employment Security says that six full-time and seven part-time WIN Job Centers will close June 21.

Executive Director Mark Henry says in a news release Thursday that the centers in Iuka and Newton will be open part-time.

The cuts are part of across-the-board federal budget reductions that went into effect on March 1. WIN centers are funded by the U. S. Department of Labor.

Henry says MDES will continue to provide services to people looking for good jobs and to businesses looking for qualified workers.

The WIN centers to be closed are in Bay Springs, Belzoni, Fulton, Hancock County, Hazlehurst, Marshall-Benton, Kosciusko, Philadelphia, Prentiss, Ripley, Rolling Fork, Tunica and Yazoo City.
