“When we needed to hire, we turned to Workforce Santa Cruz County (WFSCC). They helped us find an entry-level mechanic’s assistant. Because Patrick didn’t know this trade, WFSCC developed a training plan and reimbursed us 50% of the wages while he was trained on the job. Due to his good work and skill development, I’ve given him two raises and hired him on as a full-time employee.
