Meet Luis

Workforce Challenge

Luis was having difficulty finding employment and decided to seek assistance to obtain a Commercial Driver's License.

Workforce Solution

Workforce center staff met with Luis and determined that he was a suitable candidate for the Dislocated Worker Program, which would pay for his Commercial Driver's License training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Luis obtained his Commercial Driver's License with a hazardous materials endorsement. Upon completion, he was offered a position with an oil and gas company in South Dakota. The company offered to fly him to South Dakota, pay his room and board, and even furnish him with a truck. He received a signing bonus of $5,000 and his starting pay is $30 an hour. Luis is very thankful for this opportunity and says it would not have happened had he not received assistance from the workforce center.
