Meet Ronald

Workforce Challenge

Ronald was laid off from a large aviation company after 27 years. Ronald has a Bachelor's Degree from 1980 which could be considered outdated in today's market. Combined with his status as an older worker, he was at risk for becoming long-term unemployed.

Workforce Solution

Ronald enrolled in the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program which offers several different types of services to those whose jobs are eliminated from a declining industry. Through online job searching, Ronald found employment in another state earning almost an equal wage to what he was making at the time of his layoff.

Outcomes & Benefits

The TAA Program assisted Ronald with 90% of his relocation cost so he could relocate to the other state to accept the employment. He is now back to work in his field.
