Workforce Challenge

When a manufacturing firm closed in 2014, Erich found himself unemployed. Through Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium, Erich heard about the Trade Adjustment Assistance program (Petition # 85864), so he came in to the Gaylord service center to work with MW! Case Manager Jenna.

Workforce Solution

With Jenna’s help, Erich received TAA waivers and a job search allowance. Erich has since moved to Auburn, AL, and is now employed in manufacturing with ToolCare US International, LLC, where he earns over 80% more than at his previous job.

Outcomes & Benefits

In an email to Jenna, Erich expressed his thanks, “I would like to thank you especially for all the extra effort you put in to get my TAA claim thru. Not sure anybody else would have cared as much. The job I have now matches my experience and I have already received a promotion from Program Manager to Tooling Manager.”
