Meet Brett

Workforce Challenge

Brett was laid off in October, 2008, from a screen printing job where he made $11.50 per hour with no benefits.

Workforce Solution

Brett turned to WorkSource Clackamas for help. In June 2009, he started a 6-month Manufacturing Technology Certificate program funded by ARRA. After completing the requirements he continued his training with WIRED grant funding to complete a 1 year certificate. WIA job developers placed him in an Internship with a local manufacturing company where he was able to get 60 hours of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) experience.

Outcomes & Benefits

Finally, in November, 2010, WIA job developers placed Brett into a job with a local manufacturing company as a CNC operator. He now makes $14.45 per hour with full benefits. Congratulations, Brett!
