Jason Peth, a Training to Work Project client, completed his building maintenance training at Ranken Technical College. He was still having trouble finding employment so he reached back out to the training to work staff. He started meeting with FFSC Job Developer Marvin Shelton on a regular basis. Shelton encouraged him to go back and get his forklift and scissor lift license. His hard work and dedication paid off. He started a new job October 25, 2016 as a forklift operator making $12.50 an hour.
Peth said, “Hard work and dedication pays off. No one owes you or will give you anything in this life for free.” Peth is looking forward to spending more time with his kids and is moving into his own residence.
