The Job Corps program is funded by the Federal Government and is administered by the Department of Labor. If you are enrolled in the Job Corps, you are considered an employee of the Federal Government for Social Security purposes. The Secretary of Labor (or your designated agent) decides what pay constitutes wages and the periods that you are paid wages.
