Meet Huong

Workforce Challenge

Huong was laid off from a large aviation company where she had been earning a good wage. After the layoff, she was able to find a job with another employer, but was not making as much money. She came to the workforce center for assistance.

Workforce Solution

Huong was enrolled in the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program. Once she obtained employment at the lower wage, TAA assisted her by providing a wage subsidy called RTAA. This subsidy is designed for older workers to help them bridge the gap between their old wage and their new wage.

Outcomes & Benefits

The RTAA program helped her make it through what would have been an extremely difficult transition financially. Eventually, Huong was called back to her former employer and is now doing well.
