Displaced Caterpillar workers in Mossville, Ill., are eligible for a federal program that provides help with health insurance payments and job retraining. The Cat employees are among 3,400 workers from companies in eight states eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance. The workers were laid off in January after Caterpillar announced a plan to move its small-engine manufacturing plant to Texas. However, at the time, the company said the layoffs and the relocation were not related.
