Caltrans Program Addresses Chronic Employment Problems

The Orange County Register reports on Back 2 Work, a program that helps Caltrans find workers while helping adults with employment problems get on track to sustainable careers. The department offers program participants temporary positions in its Clean California highway beautification program, allowing full-time staff to focus on higher-level maintenance and safety work. The workers receive pay and assistance finding housing, transportation and skills needed to start a career, which can begin with permanent Caltrans employment. Back 2 Work recently received a $127 million funding boost and now operates in 41 of California’s 58 counties.
