Meet Rafael

Workforce Challenge

Currently on probation, Rafael has two felonies on his record. He wanted to be a truck driver, but he struggled to find even an entry-level position and he knew he needed training. A family member told Rafael about WIB services and recommended that he visit the America’s Job Center of California.

Workforce Solution

Normally, Rafael's felonies and probation status would make it difficult for him to find employment in the trucking industry. However, with help from the WIB and once he achieved his Class A license, Rafael received a recommendation letter from a company that was willing to give him an opportunity to prove himself. The WIB approved him for commercial truck driving training through Roadmaster Drivers School.

Outcomes & Benefits

Once he successfully completed the course and passed his Class A driver exam, Rafael was hired. He is currently employed with Wallace Concrete, Inc. Rafael told his advisor that he is “...very grateful for the opportunity to attend truck driver training and to be starting a good career with a promising future.”
