On the Road Again

Don Hartley

Don Hartley was a retired truck driver, but after being retired for several years, he decided he would like to return to work. His CDL had expired and he was in need of funding to take a refresher course to obtain a new license.

With funding assistance from Michigan Works!, Don was able to quickly complete his CDL refresher course.

He passed all the necessary medical and road tests and was able to obtain his CDL. Within a week of completing the refresher course, Don was offered a job at Billy’s Contracting out of Saginaw, MI. He is now making $15/hr and enjoys being back in the workforce.

Thanks to Michigan Works! providing funding assistance for Don to complete his CDL refresher course, he is now employed once again.

Don was extremely thankful to Michigan Works! and is excited to be employed once again. Don stated he wouldn’t have been able to obtain his CDL and get reemployed so quickly without the help of Michigan Works!
