After successfully completing assessments, WorkOne Northeast gave me the financial support necessary to obtain my Commercial Driver’s License. I now own my own rig and I went from a $10-an-hour job to one paying $52,000 a year, allowing me to better support my family. Without WorkOne, I don’t know where I’d be.
