Meet Mikkel

Workforce Challenge

Mikkel is a veteran who was employed at time of enrollment, but he needed a forklift certification in order to maintain his job and earn a wage increase. Due to low pay, he couldn’t afford paying for training on his own, and employer was unable to pay for it either since it was a new company starting business. Mikkel stated he had the potential to grow within this company and wasn’t interested in switching jobs or careers as suggested by the case manager.

Workforce Solution

Mikkel enrolled in WIOA and received tuition assistance for forklift training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mikkel obtained forklift certification and soon after, he received a 24% pay increase.

Mikkel’s case exemplifies the impact WIOA can have in helping our veterans and those who are underemployed
