Meet Bruce

Workforce Challenge

Bruce has worked in aviation for over 30 years. He was recently laid off from a large aviation company. Bruce was faced with several challenges in trying to obtain employment mainly finding an employer meeting his desired wage.

Workforce Solution

Bruce enrolled in the TAA Program. Through this program Bruce had received a job interview in another state. TAA was able to help with the cost to get Bruce to and from that interview.

Outcomes & Benefits

Bruce was offered the position in the other state. Through the TAA Program, Bruce was able to obtain Relocation Assistance to help with the cost to relocate him and his family to his new job location. Because Bruce is not making exactly what he was making prior to being laid off, TAA is also assisting Bruce with RTAA, a wage subsidy to help ease the wage gap.
